VIDEO: Justin Upton hit a baseball really far tonight

Apr 10, 2014, 9:29 PM EDT

Braves outfielder Justin Upton began last season with a ridiculous power surge, but he entered tonight’s game homerless over his first 33 plate appearances this season. Well, he has changed that with two home runs against Mets right-hander Jenrry Mejia. The second one went really, really far. 477 feet, according to ESPN Stats and Info:

My favorite part of that home run might have been the reaction from Mejia. While you can’t see it in that replay, he actually threw his glove on the ground in frustration.

    The little hop skip “oh crap” dance by Meija was a nice touch as well.

    Don’t care, the Mets won the ballgame! The top of the lineup was on fire tonight, stealing so many bases it was making the Braves’ heads spin. Some clutch work out of the much-maligned bullpen. Lagares with another key hit.

    But hey, let’s not make mention of any of that, because lolMets narrative, rite guiz? Rite?!? Haha

      REN !! I’m so sorry I didn’t pray for your Braves to win today :-(.. Your cappuccino delight are all for nothing. Nymets4ever your team are the winners here and I shall give you candy! (Here you go.)

      Congratulations the Met’s stole bases on the bottom of the rotation and the backup catcher. They keep playing like that they could get back to mediocrity in no time.

        Hey, you were on quite a roll with the laughable irrelevent excuses there, dude! Don’t stop now! Talk about how the barometric pressure in the Greater Atlanta Metropolitan Area was unfairly in the Mets’ favor last night, how Fredi Gonzalez had split ends in his goatee hair, and how Warren Spahn had a chipped nail last night. Because as everyone knows, the New York Mets never, ever deserve credit for anything.

      Even though the Mets won this game, their season is already over…

      Sub .500 team here folks…
