Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw has been overshadowed at the plate this season by the likes of home-run-crushing teammates Christian Yelich and Mike Moustakas.
But on Sunday he showed some awe-inspiring power as well.
In the third inning, Shaw broke through after Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani had struck out the side in the first two innings. He did it by launching an incredible 465-foot homer to right field that just barely skirted around the foul pole.
The ball left Shaw’s bat at 113 miles-per-hour — just absolutely hammered.
It was Shaw’s sixth home run of the season and gave the Brewers an early 1-0 lead over the Reds, who have taken two of the first three games of this four-game series.
