Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna had already cranked two home runs when he stepped up to the plate in the top of the eighth against the Boston Red Sox. And then he hit another homer, which was a particularly incredible blast.
Ozuna hit a baseball where very few have, well beyond the center field wall at Fenway Park.

Statcast doesn't have any any of those Ozuna HRs for some reason.

Statcast did not track the home run data, but we can safely say that the ball went a long, long way.
Ozuna finished the night 3-for-5, with three home runs and six runs batted in, to lead Atlanta to a 10-3 victory.
The 29-year-old signed a one-year, $18 million deal with Atlanta over the offseason, and has proven to be a highly valuable addition to the first-place Braves. On the season, Ozuna has has 11 homers, 29 runs batted in, and a .295/.383/.605 slash line.
