During Tuesday night’s Cleveland Indians and Milwaukee Brewers game, an unlikely source provided a massive spark on offense. In the bottom of the third inning, already up by a run, Milwaukee pitcher Brent Suter launched an absolute bomb to deep center field.
It was his first home run of the season, and of his MLB career, and it was a moon shot, no-doubt-about-it blast.

In fact, the homer ended up going 433 feet, which marks the fifth-longest home run hit by a pitcher in the Statcast era.
