Down 3-0 against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, the Detroit Tigers got a boost when C.J. Cron launched a ball into the stratosphere for a home run.

Check out this 447-foot homer, which Cron hit into the second deck off Sonny Gray.

The first baseman got every bit of that ball and sent it soaring. Just a beautiful piece of hitting that finally got the Tigers on the board in this one.
