Rays manager Kevin Cash sent Avisail Garcia to hit the Austin Meadows hit in the seventh with the hope that the change would blow his team's offense back to the Orioles. Garcia struck out on his first at-bat, so Cash's plan did not make a great start.
But in the ninth inning, with his team now only one, Garcia more than made up for his first appearance with this purifier that sent the game to additional innings.
Statcast recorded that the home run has an exit speed of 113 mph, an estimated distance of 447 feet and a throw angle of 27 degrees. A bat throw with two hands is more than justified when you get that kind of numbers in a dinger that ties the game late to your team.
The only thing that could have improved this moment is if it were a dismissal, so I propose that if your home run makes contact with a structure that is absurdly high on the ground, you should count for two.
