Fun fact: Until tonight the #Dbacks had never scored 18 runs in a road game.
Juan Soto + Matt Adams,
back-to-back HR off 100+ mph heat
Soto: 100.1 mph fastball
Adams: 101.5 mph fastball
It's the 1st time a team has hit two HR off 100+ mph pitches in a game in the pitch-tracking era (since 2008). It's actually the 1st time a team's hit two in a *season.*
Tayron Guerrero: 100.1 mph fastball.
Juan Soto: No problem.
That go-ahead three-run shot in the 8th inning is the fastest pitch hit for a HR across MLB this season.
.@ChristianYelich is the fastest player to 20 HR (in terms of team games) since Josh Hamilton in 2012.
Keep your out.

The most strikes thrown (82) in a White Sox shutout since John Danks on 5/31/15.
The @Twins have set the record for most 400-ft. HR in a game in the Statcast era (7).
Riley is the first @Braves hitter with 5 HR through his first 9 career games. https://twitter.com/Braves/status/1131683805646020609
#OTD in 2002, Shawn Green was unconscious: 4 HR and an @MLB-record 19 total bases.

"Stop pitching to them!"

9/08/2017 Detroit Tigers
5/22/2019 Chicago White Sox
