VIDEO: Rays' Willy Adames Rips Mammoth 462-Foot Home Run off Boston's Josh Taylor

The Boston Red Sox season may be over, but the Tampa Bay Rays are still fighting for their lives in the AL Wild Card race. Late in a tight game against their division rivals, shortstop Willy Adames came to the plate and added some protection to Tampa's lead, in a very loud way. Adames absolutely clobbered a solo shot off Josh Taylor, landing in the netting out beyond the center field wall.

Talk about a moonshot. Adames' blast was a no-doubter from the moment he presented that intense leg kick. With one swing of the bat, he injected a little bit of life into the crowd at Tropicana Field.
