WATCH: Jake Marisnick shows off his skills

StatCast breaks down Jake Marisnick’s outstanding plays on Sunday.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday game against the Red Sox should be forgotten as soon as possible by Astros fans. But before we all take the amnesia pill, that we enjoy Jake Marisnick’s night of highlights.

It started in the first inning when Joe Musgrove was being hit hard but the inning could have been far worse if not for an astounding play in center field by Marisnick.

Marisnick tracked down a Mookie Betts fly ball on the run, covering 107 feet and ranked as a four-star play.

#JakeDay wasn’t done with the highlights. Red Sox manager John Ferrell was punished for leaving starter David Price with over 100 pitches under his belt in the sixth inning. Marisnick blasted ball onto the train tracks, a home run that measured at 454 feet.

It was the longest home run that Marisnick has hit since 2015.

Last night stunk but at Jake Marisnick was able to shine on the national stage.
