The Venezuelan Orlando Arcia, versatile player of the Atlanta Braves, hit his eighth home run of the 2022 Major League Baseball (MLB) campaign on Monday night.
In the top of the sixth inning, the Venezuelan punished a fastball from fellow Venezuelan Andrés Machado, reliever for the Washington Nationals, to get the ball all over center field.
According to Baseball Savant, Arcia's connection, with a runner on second, posted an exit speed of 104.5 miles per hour and traveled 411 feet at Nationals Park.
With his hit from four corners, the native of Anaco, Anzoátegui state, reached 28 RBIs in the harvest.
In addition to Arcia, Matt Olson and Marcell Ozuna also hit the ball out of the park to drive in the other Braves streaks.
For his part, Bryce Elder covered the full route to score his first win by way of shutout in the MLB.
In nine innings of work, the right-hander allowed six hits, gave away a walk and struck out six rivals.

Tonight, Elder became the first rookie of #The Braves with a complete game since 1990 when RHP Paul Marak allowed four hits in a shutout against Houston.#ByLaA pic.twitter.com/on9gtFiutR
Thanks to his great presentation this day, the pitcher is 2-3 and lowered his ERA to 2.76.
With this win (8-0), the Braves, who have already secured their presence in the postseason, were one game behind the New York Mets in the final bid for the National League East Division.
