Brew Crew Blasts #8: Lucroy's encore

Jonathan Lucroy capped off one of the season's biggest days with one of its longest homers.


Even if the May 31 game against the Phillies had only been eight innings long, Jonathan Lucroy would've had a big day.

Lucroy drove in the Brewers' first run with a double in the second inning, then plated another with a single in the third. He homered to lead off the fifth (380 feet to left) and singled to lead off the seventh for his fourth hit of the day. He wasn't done, though.

With the Brewers leading 7-5 and two outs in the top of the ninth, Lucroy came up for a fifth time and connected for this blast off Mike Adams:

The hit actually could've been bigger, as Carlos Gomez was caught stealing with Lucroy at the plate.

Nonetheless, that ball traveled 429 feet to right center. It was the seventh longest homer hit at Citizens Bank Park in 2013, and the longest Mike Adams has given up since Hit Tracker started keeping track in 2006. Adams only allowed five homers in 2013 but Lucroy had a pair of them.
