Brew Crew Blasts #3: Lucroy Launches

USA TODAY Sports

Oh hey, it's Paul Maholm again.

Paul Maholm allowed 17 home runs this season, and five of them traveled 420 feet or more. We already mentioned that Carlos Gomez had one of them, and Jonathan Lucroy had another.

The Brewers fell behind 6-0 early against the Braves on Sunday, June 23, but plated four runs in the fifth to close the gap. Logan Schafer drove home the first two runs with a single up the middle, and Jonathan Lucroy brought him around to score with this tape measure blast:

By the way, the Brewers were wearing their "Piwowarzy" uniforms on this day for Polish Heritage Day.

That ball traveled 436 feet despite never being more than 83 feet off the ground, leading Hit Tracker to estimate that it wouldn't have gotten out of four MLB stadiums. It was still the longest homer hit by a Brewer at Miller Park in 2013, though, and the fourth longest hit in the park overall.

It was also Lucroy's second longest homer of the season. We'll cover the bigger one tomorrow.
