Franklin Gutierrez has yet to really get going with the bat like he did in 2015. Perhaps it started on Saturday with one of the longest homers this season.

Facing Cincinnati starter John Lamb, Gutierrez crushed a 2-0 fastball into the left field upper deck at Great American Ball Park for a three-run homer and a 4-0 lead for Seattle.

MLB statcast measured the towering, majstic blast at 473 feet with a 117 mph exit velocity. Per Statcast measures, it was the second longest homer of the season, second only to Giancarlo Stanton’s blast of 475 feet.

It was Gutierrez’s second homer of the season.
