Who would've thought a home run in the second inning of a 9-0 game would leave a lasting impression on a city and its home stadium? Yordan Alvarez's monster home run against the Oakland Athletics did just that.

Alvarez's 24th home run of the season was the first home run to ever land in the third deck of Minute Maid Park. As such, the stadium crew made sure fans know exactly where that ball landed.

The seat in which Alvarez's home run landed is now painted orange just one day after he hit the mammoth 415-foot blast (or so Statcast claims) to the right field seats. Alvarez's home run could be one of the memorable images from a season in which the Astros have World Series expectations.

The Astros would love that kind of hitting to continue down the stretch as they look to secure the top spot in the AL, as they're currently tied with the New York Yankees at 95-50.

In a random at-bat in a blowout win, Alvarez left a lasting impression.
