Stanton sends baseball into bar

MIAMI — Giancarlo Stanton didn’t quite send his latest home run into orbit. But he did launch the drive into Budweiser Bar, located well beyond the wall in left center.

Giancarlo Stanton’s home run on Thursday night landed in the Budweiser Bar area at Marlins Park.

Stanton connected on a no-doubt blast of Ryan Vogelsong of the Giants in the second inning at Marlins Park.

Miami’s 22-year-old slugger now has 10 home runs on the season, with nine in May.

The estimate on the drive was 434 feet.

Stanton is wearing out Marlins Park of late. On Monday against the Rockies, he smashed a grand slam off Jamie Moyer that took out light panels on the video scoreboard down the left-field line.

That shot was estimated at 438 feet.
