Devers tied things up for Boston in a big way with the Red Sox down a run in the first game of the series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The third baseman took the seventh pitch he saw, a four-seam 94 mph fastball, 419 feet to right field.

And the leather may have come right off the ball with how hard this one was smoked, with an exit velocity of 116.5 mph to make it a 1-1 game.

Check it out:

Per Statcast, via Ian Browne of MLB.com, that’s the second-hardest hit ball by a Red Sox player behind a home run from Hanley Ramirez in 2018. It also was the hardest hit ball of his career.

Sheesh.
