Toronto Blue Jays rookie slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. crushed his first career home run in the MLB on Tuesday night in opposition to the San Francisco Giants.
In the very best of the first inning, Guerrero smashed a four-seam fastball from Giants pitcher Nick Vincent over the center self-discipline wall at Oracle Park. The solo homer gave the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead over San Francisco.
Guerrero’s deep ball left the bat at 111 mph and traveled 438 ft. At age 20 years and 59 days, he turned the youngest Blue Jays participant to ever file a home run. Before Guerrero’s bomb, the youngest participant to hit a homer in a Blue Jays uniform was current Boston Celtics primary supervisor Danny Ainge in 1979, primarily based on MLB Stats.
Guerrero entered Tuesday night’s contest with a .191 batting widespread, one RBI and solely two extra-base hits, every doubles, in 13 video video games.
The Blue Jays led the Giants 4-2 in the underside of the fourth inning.
