Watch: Miguel Sanó hits Twins' 2nd-longest home run of Statcast era

Sanó's 495-foot blast was launched all the way out of Fenway Park.

Miguel Sanó launched a 495-foot bomb all the way out of Fenway Park on Wednesday night in what was the second-longest home run by a Twin during the Statcast era.

With the Twins holding onto an early 1-0 lead, Sanó stepped to the plate in the third inning and delivered a majestic blast that cleared the highest point of the stadium and out toward the Citgo sign.

The blast was one foot shy of the Twins' record, held by Sanó when he launched a 496-foot home run on Sept. 17, 2019.

Sanó has had a rough season for the Twins, hitting .217 with 21 homers and 56 games after Wednesday's win over the Boston Red Sox. While Sanó has 132 strikeouts on the season, his mammoth blast is a reminder of what can happen when he makes contact.
