Marlins' Stanton hits moonshot

MIami's Giancarlo Stanton hit a 446-foot homer off of San Francisco's Matt Cain in the Marlins' 6-4 loss.

Anything that travels this far oughta have a stewardess on it, don't you think?

On Saturday in Miami, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton crushed a pitch from San Francisco Giants starter Matt Cain that should have used a runway for takeoff.

The blast occurred in the bottom of the sixth inning on a full count with a man on first. A pitch earlier, Cain buzzed Stanton with a high-and-tight fastball, sending the Marlins slugger to the ground.

Stanton obviously didn't think too kindly of the brushback and sent this puppy flying into the South Florida sky. The Associated Press reported the ball flew 446 feet.

Enjoy, and thank you for flying with us today!
