In case you missed the game tonight, we’ll have a recap up later. However, to get you in the mood for it, or simply for your viewing pleasure, here is the Hunter Pence home run. It was estimated at 476 feet, the longest in season in MLB.

Granted, the ball likes to fly in Coors Field, but this was a monster in ANY ballpark. This is Pence’s team-leading 16th home run of the season. Guess running into the right field wall didn’t hurt him too much after all.
