In the bottom of the third inning earlier tonight, Twins third baseman Miguel Sanó hit a baseball that looked like it would never land.
Turns out it did land … over the batters eye in center field:

That home run was Sanó’s 8th of the season and first hit of the night. He’s now hitting .321/.444/.716 on the season with a 218 wRC+ which ranks fifth in MLB. His eight homers are tied for seventh most with Scott Schebler, Joey Votto, Adam Duvall, and Mark Reynolds.
And just in case you didn’t think that homer was as crushed as it was, check out the batted ball data:
111 MPH off the bat and a 30 degree launch angle created one of the 30th furthest home runs here in 2017. That boy is on fire.
