Giancarlo Stanton awes and inspires with his displays of power on a regular basis. Often these displays involve moon shot home runs that travel a great distance.
In other cases these displays of might involve low, screaming line drives that have no business whatsoever being home runs but end up over the fence anyway, appearing to defy physics. This home run was just such a shot, as Stanton was off-balance on an off-speed pitch and just muscled it out to right field anyway.
This was Stanton’s 7th home run of the season as he tries to rebound from a down season in 2013. This brings his career total to 125 home runs, which seems an appropriate time to issue a reminder that he is only 24 years old.
