Yankees leftfielder Giancarlo Stanton, booed after striking out five times in his home debut Tuesday, crushed a two-run homer an estimated 458 feet into the second deck in left in his first at-bat Wednesday afternoon against the Rays.
Well, in Tuesday's 11-4 victory over the Rays, Stanton could not do anything right at the plate, and the NY faithful made sure to let him know that he disappointed in his home debut. After the fourth and fifth K's, both of which came with runners in scoring position, Yankee fans let Stanton hear it.
Stanton's blast to left was clocked at 117.9 miles per hour by StatCast, making it the hardest hit ball in the majors this season, and in the top five of Stanton's career, and it carried an estimated 458 feet.
The five strikeouts are a career-high for Stanton, who had four strikeouts 16 times prior to Tuesday.
Despite hitting two home runs on Opening Day, the All-Star was shown no mercy Tuesday in his Yankee Stadium debut after his 4th and 5th strikeouts.
