Torii Hunter Laughs at Jeremy Guthrie’s Curveball, Then Hits a 428 Foot Home Run

Jeremy Guthrie did not have it last night. He, and the rest of the Kansas City Royals, got shelled by the hot bats of the Detroit Tigers in a 16-4 thrashing. Even after the game, Hunter told a reporter that it seemed like Guthrie was sick because he is definitely better than he was last night.

During the top of the 5th inning, Guthrie tried to throw what appeared to be a cross between and eephus pitch and a curveball. It was awful and it gave Torii Hunter a bit of a chuckle at the plate.

He collected himself and stepped back into the box and Guthrie threw a hot piece of shit, straight down the pipe. The soon-to-be 39 year old Hunter put the ball over the fountains about 428 feet.

Also, I’m told he was ignored in the dugout after going yard.. If someone has video of that, send it over because that is hilarious.
