Elly De La Cruz breaks her own record with a lightning bolt to the plate

Last Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers, Elly De La Cruz set the record for the most powerful shot to execute an out in the Statcast era (2015) and this afternoon he broke his own record with an incredible throw towards home in the duel between the Cincinnati Reds and the San Francisco Giants.

At the top of the fourth inning of the reds winLuis Matos doubled to left field while Wilmer Flores was on first base and the Giants third base coach encouraged the runner to score, but a shot from De La Cruz that traveled 99.8 mph was good to knock him out at home pad.

With that, the Dominican is the leader in throws of more than 95 miles per hour as an infielder since the Statcast era with four in just 37 games played in the Major Leagues. De La Cruz is tied with Fernando Tatis Jr. as the leaders in that category.
