Nick Pivetta learned a valuable lesson Wednesday night: never throw one over the heart of the plate to Miguel Sano.
The Minnesota Twins slugger crushed a 495-foot home run -- the longest homer of the 2021 MLB season and fifth-longest of the Statcast era -- off of the Boston Red Sox starter at Fenway Park. Sano's blast sailed far over the Green Monster to extend Minnesota's lead to 2-0.
An absolute moonshot.
The homer was Sano's 22nd of the campaign. Pivetta exited the game after allowing four runs on six hits in four innings of work.
