On Sunday, Baltimore Orioles third baseman Renato Núñez got ahold of a fastball and absolutely obliterated it to put his team on the board.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Yonny Chirinos delivered a 93 mile-per-hour fastball on the outside part of the plate. Núñez turned on it quickly and sent it out of the park in a hurry.

It’s hardly the first time he’s tagged Chirinos like this. The two have a rather lopsided history, with Núñez having plenty of success.


This laser-beam home run put the Orioles up 1-0 over the Rays in the third inning. It was the second of the year for the Orioles slugger.
