In just his second career Major League Baseball at-bat, Atlanta Braves sensation Austin Riley belted a massive 438-foot homer off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha.

The shot was such a no doubt about her that Cardinals left fielder Marcell Ozuna didn’t even move.

Talk about some raw power from the young slugger. Riley, 22, was called up from the minors to start Wednesday night’s game.

He was hitting .299 with a whopping 15 homers and 39 RBI in 37 games down at Triple-A before getting the call. Riley entered this season as Atlanta’s fourth-best prospect. We can tell why.
