Roark loaded the bases with two outs by allowing an infield single to Giancarlo Stanton, followed by walks to Christian Yelich and Ozuna. On a 2-2 pitch, Bour crushed an 84.2-mph changeup.

According to Statcast™, the home run projected at 414 feet with an exit velocity of 110 mph, and a 20-degree launch angle.

Bour has been especially effective pulling the ball. Of his 61 hits, 55 have been pulled. Per Statcast™, his 93.1-mph exit velocity on balls to the pull side is tied second most in the Majors among left-handed hitters with Eric Hosmer of the Royals. Texas’ Joey Gallo tops the chart at 93.9 mph.

Bour now has three career grand slams, with his last coming on June 24, 2016, against the Cubs.
