Lights out! Giancarlo Stanton hit this home run so hard that it smashed the scoreboard

“This kid is very strong, I’ve never seen anything like that,” Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said afterwards.

HOW ABOUT THIS for a hit?

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit his ninth home run of the season against the Colorado Rockies on Monday night – but this one was a bit special.

Stanton’s 438-foot drive was hit so hard that when it crashed into the scoreboard out in left field, it temporarily knocked out a block of lights.

“I keep saying, this kid is very strong, I’ve never seen anything like that,” Miami manager Ozzie Guillen told MLB.com. “I don’t see a ball come off of a bat like that.”

The Marlins won 7-4.
