Gonzalez said Upton had "about as pretty a swing as you're going to see" on the homer to center. Mejía jumped up and down, tossed his glove in disgust and then put his head down and pouted while he went to pick up his glove. It was quite funny. Upton hit a solo home run in the eighth off Tyler Clippard that tied the score 6-all, his third homer in two games. The ball traveled 477 feet, according to ESPN's Home Run Tracker, the second longest homer of the season, seven fewer feet than Giancarlo Stanton's big blast over the weekend. Atlanta's Ramiro Pena and Washington's Ryan Zimmerman hit three-run drives Zimmerman following a throwing error by Dan Uggla on a routine grounder to second.
