Bryce Harper reacts to Kyle Schwarber's incredible postseason home run.

Philadelphia Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber has added another mind-blowing home run to his postseason career in Game 1 of the NLCS on Tuesday night at Petco Park.

In the top of the sixth inning, Schwarber crushed an absolutely ridiculous bomb on a hanging breaking ball from San Diego Padres starting pitcher Yu Darvish to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead.

The home run went an estimated 488 feet with a 120 mph exit velocity. It landed in the second deck — uncharted territory — in the right-field seats at Petco Park.

Schwarber’s star teammate Bryce Harper had a reaction that summarizes how amazing the blast was:

It’s the longest homer of Schwarber’s career, and it’s the longest homer in Petco Park history. It’s the second-longest home run recorded by Statcast in MLB postseason history (Willson Contreras hit one 491 feet as Schwarber’s teammate with the Chicago Cubs in the 2017 NLCS).

The home run was officially tracked at 119.7 mph by Statcast. Only Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton (who each homered earlier in the day) have hit home runs with a higher exit velocity in the pitch-tracking era (since 2008). Schwarber’s is the hardest-hit homer in the postseason.

Harper got the scoring started for the Phillies with a solo homer earlier in the game:

Schwarber — who hit an NL-best 46 homers in the regular season — didn’t take long into his career to show off his prodigious power in the postseason. In his first career postseason game as a rookie with te Chicago Cubs, he hit a 450-foot homer against Gerrit Cole in the 2015 NL Wild Card Game.

And in the 2015 NLDS, he hit an amazing blast off a scoreboard over the right-field wall at Wrigley Field.
