J.T. Realmuto: 2 HR, including inside-the-park HR in the 4th inning that traveled 26 feet farther than his other HR pic.twitter.com/wLeGZeYe84— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) September 9, 2015
J.T. Realmuto joined exclusive company Tuesday night, becoming only the third player in Marlins history to hit an inside-the-park home run and another over the fence in the same game.
The Marlins’ rookie catcher slugged his first one the traditional way in the second inning when he jumped on the first pitch from Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann and drilled it over the left field wall, an estimated 385-feet according to ESPN.
Then, Realmuto opened the fourth inning with a scorching, 411-foot line drive to center off Junggman that bounced high off the top of the wall and away from center fielder Domingo Santana, allowing Realmuto to circle the bases easily.
Realmuto joined Derrek Lee (April 12, 2003) and Hanley Ramirez (Sept. 27, 2006) as the only players in Marlins history to achieve the feat.
