Another home run in Major League Baseball Tuesday evening, but this wasn’t just any long ball.

Kansas City’s Alex Gordon hit MLB’s record 5,694th home run of 2017, breaking a season record set in 2000 at the height of the Steroids Era. Gordon’s home run off Toronto’s Ryan Tepera, which cut the Royals’ deficit to 5-2, was his eighth this season and the 159th of his 11-year big league career.
