Colorado Rockies right fielder Charlie Blackmon (19) celebrates his two run home run with shortstop Trevor Story (27) in the first inning against the San Diego Padres at Coors Field.  Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time this season, Colorado Rockies star Charlie Blackmon hit a home run, and he made it memorable on Friday night.

With San Diego Padres starter Garrett Richards on the mound and a man on first base, Blackmon got every bit of this pitch. He drove it 446 feet out of the park for a rocket-shot two-run homer.

Chuck Nasty is back, ladies and gentlemen. Long since recovered from his battle with COVID-19, Blackmon looks as dangerous as ever at the plate.
