The Cincinnati Reds are taking on the Cleveland Indians in the first battle of Ohio thus far on the young season.

It did not take Reds star infielder Eugenio Suarez too long to make an impact against Cleveland. Check out this absolutely majestic 418-foot solo homer he hit off Indians starter Shane Bieber Tuesday.

Talk about dead red. That ball was absolutely smoked. It left the field with an exit velocity of 109 miles-per hour. Again, smoked.

This is something the Reds are going to need from Suarez moving forward. After hitting 49 homers and driving in 103 runs a season ago, the former All-Star entered Tuesday’s action hitting .086 with zero homers and two RBI over the first 10 games of the 2020 campaign.
