Houston Astros centerfielder Jake Marisnick narrowly missed a home run against Boston Red Sox starter David Price in the bottom of the second, but he got all of the pitch he connected with in the sixth inning, which knocked Price from the game.

Price may have come out to begin the inning, but after the ball landed 454 feet and onto the train tracks for the longest home run of Marisnick’s career, it was time to depart.

Houston wasted no time in following up on Marisnick’s power display, as George Springer greeted Heath Hembree to the Father’s Day game with a blast of his own for back-to-back home runs.
