Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit his fifth homer in six games on Saturday, belting a 462-foot moonshot to center off Brewers starter Chase Anderson.

With one out and the bases empty, Stanton crushed an 82-mph changeup on an 0-2 count for his eighth home run of the year, recording an exit velocity of 117 mph according to Statcast. It gave the Marlins a 5–1 lead.

Stanton’s longball is just the 10th batted ball this season that’s been hit at least 117 mph off the bat. He recorded one of those hits, with an exit velocity of 120 mph on April 10.
