Lars Anderson isn't well-known for his power, but in the last three games he's played, he's smacked three homers. The most recent of those went so far that Anderson was featured on Sportscenter's top 10 plays. It's easy to see why, especially after it lands:

According to PawSox radio broadcaster Aaron Goldsmith, no one has ever hit the video board at McCoy Stadium before. And while it's unlikely you would bet on Lars Anderson being the one to do it, as you just saw, that's exactly what went down.

The left-handed Anderson has actually been putting up impressive numbers against right-handed pitching this year -- he's at .268/.395/.515 with five homers, 21 walks and just 23 strikeouts in 97 at-bats -- but lefties continue to confound him. He also has found the very friendly to lefties McCoy to his liking, with five of his six homers coming at home. The stadium might not dig his swing so much if he uses that to rain destruction upon it, though.
