Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton continues to blast home runs.

On Sunday, his solo shot in the third inning against the Colorado Rockies was one of the more memorable long balls for Stanton — for more than one reason.

While now tallying 21 long balls in his last 33 games, the veteran slugger has officially registered career home run No. 250. Not only that, but Stanton’s 42 homers on the year ties Gary Sheffield’s single-season club record, a mark that was previously set back in 1996.

It is also worth noting that Stanton has become the sixth fastest player to reach 250 career home runs since 1913 (in terms of games played).
