Nelson Cruz continues to dazzle with age-defying brilliance on the baseball field, and he showcased his immense power on back-to-back swings in the second inning of Monday's Twins-Tigers game in Detroit.
With the Twins leading 2-0, Cruz came to bat with the bases loaded. He launched a 1-0 pitch from Jose Urena just foul into the right field stands. It was so close to being a grand slam that the umpiring crew reviewed the video to make sure the ball didn't scrape the foul pole.
On the very next pitch, Boomstick smoked a line drive over the left field wall for a grand slam and a 6-0 Twins lead.
The baseball left Cruz's bat at a blistering 114.6 mph and traveled 377 feet.
