The Colorado Rockies led the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 when Dexter Fowler stepped to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning of Thursday night’s game at Busch Stadium. On a 2-0 count, Fowler crushed a Yency Almonte fastball over the right-center field wall for what would serve as a game-winning dinger in the Cardinals’ 6-5 win.

Most of the people in attendance at Busch Stadium likely knew it was gone off the bat. But wily veteran catcher Yadier Molina knew it was gone before Fowler even swung.
Watch the reaction of Molina in the St. Louis dugout as the pitch is being delivered:
