During Sunday afternoon’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins, a particular at-bat stuck out.

That was the Oneil Cruz vs. Sandy Alcantara showdown.

Looking at this matchup on paper, one would assume Cruz would have been severely outmatched. Nothing against Cruz; it’s just that Alcantara is one of the best pitchers in the major leagues and the National League City Young award favorite and Cruz is a rookie.

Yet, Cruz took Alcantara deep for on a 99.4 MPH fastball up and in. The ball traveled 414 feet.
