Holy freakin’ Moly. Jesus Sanchez just obliterated a baseball.
With the count even at 2-2 with two outs in the top of the second inning, Sanchez hit one 496 feet into the Colorado sun. That’s 24 feet further than the previous longest home run of the season (472 feet) off the bat of Mike Trout. And it’s actually the longest home run since Nomar Mazara hit one 505 feet all the way back in 2019!
JESUS SANCHEZ HIT THAT BALL A 𝗠𝗜𝗟𝗘 𝗛𝗜𝗚𝗛 🤯

“I don’t know what to say, other than ‘Wow.'”
The ball left his bat at 115 MPH and at 31 degrees. You almost never see that combination of exit velocity and launch angle. That – and the fact that it was Coors Field – is why it traveled so far and left everyone from the dugout to the broadcast booth stunned.
That was Sanchez’s fifth homer of the season and put the Marlins up one run.
