Kyle Schwarber made some solid contact in Game 1 of the NLCS last night.
The ball traveled 488 feet into the seats and 120 mph off the bat.
Needless to say, there were awestruck teammates in the Phillies dugout on Tuesday night.
The blast from Schwarber and another one from Bryce Harper earlier in the game were all the Phillies needed to take Game 1.
After the game, Schwarber had a hilarious comment on his big blast, saying that a lot of his teammates gave him some weird looks, but that he was happy the Phillies pulled through in Game 1.
“A lot of people just looked at me weird 😂 It was cool. It was a cool moment. But I’m happy we got the win overall”

Schwarber’s Blast Stuns Phillies
When you hit a ball that hard and that far, you’re going to get some weird looks from your teammates.
But it’s all in good fun because something went right.
There isn’t much else to say about the home run at this point, other than it was absolutely crushed and put everybody at Petco Park in complete and utter shock.
That is what happens when a player hits a ball that hard and that far.
Schwarber’s comment when asked about the home run is absolutely hilarious.
It was certainly a cool moment that he and his Phillies teammates got to share.
Just a few hours later, they got to celebrate a Game 1 victory.
Now, they can look forward to having an opportunity to take a 2-0 lead back home for Game 3 as they send Aaron Nola to the mound, who was excellent in his Wild Card start at Busch Stadium and in his NLDS start against the Atlanta Braves.
