This Saturday night, the Miggy hit the first home run of his career, a stick that went out at 101.1MPH and traveled 390 feet across the center field of Dodgers Stadium. Vargas caught a 93.5MPH fastball from Cardinals left-hander Jordan Montgomery and made him pay. The hit brought Austin Barnes to the plate and made it 4-0 in the second inning of the game. It is the second extra base of Vargas in his career, the previous one was the double in San Francisco that meant his first hit as a major leaguer.
Miguel Vargas is the 196th Cuban to hit at least one home run in the Major Leagues. This home run represents his seventh hit of the year, as he scored his second run and drove in runs 4-5 on his personal tally. Due to his size, this hit would have been a home run in 6 of the 30 stadiums that MLB counts.
Ball to save for Miggy and the palms of a Dodgers Stadium that yesterday witnessed the 700th home run of a legend of the game and tonight the first of one that could become a legend of the game. Congratulations to Miguel Antonio Vargas, the first home run of many for the Cuban.
