OF Wil Myers hit one of the longest balls of the season on Sunday, drilling a pitch from Twins starter Pedro Hernandez 440 feet into the upper deck of Target Field, far above the Rays' bullpen. Archer stood at home plate for a second or two to admire his work, and replays appeared to show the rookie smiling. Since his major league debut on June 18, Myers has 46 runs batted in, more than any other first-year player in baseball. The homer was his 12th of the season.
