DENVER (AP) — Vladimir Guerrero Jr. stood at home plate and admired his handiwork for an extra moment. It’s hard to blame him after crushing a slider from Corbin Burnes in the third inning that landed near the last row of seats in left field.
Like father, like son as he gave the American League a 2-0 lead after three innings in the All-Star Game. His dad homered off Brad Penny in 2006.
The 468-foot liner from the younger Guerrero was a no-doubter. Immediately after it was hit, shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. put his glove on his head and slowly turned around to watch the ball leave the yard.
It was the longest homer at the All-Star Game since Statcast began tracking in 2015.
Guerrero’s homer was No. 200 in All-Star Game history.
Burnes was tagged for both runs. He also surrendered an RBI single to Marcus Semien in the second.
