Trevor Story had a historic night on the diamond, hitting three home runs for the first time in his career, and hitting them farther than anyone has done so previously. And each one told a different tale.

The three solo shots gave the Rockies the lead, tied the game and put them on top for good, respectively, as Story paced the Rox to a 5-3 win to sweep the series with the Giants and extend their lead at the top of the National League West. The Dodgers lost to the Mets earlier in the day, falling 1 1/2 games behind the Rockies, and the idle D-backs fell two back.

The combined distance of 1,380 feet is more than 4 1/2 football fields. Story swung so hard connecting for his first home run that he knocked himself to the ground. His second blast was the longest homer since Statcast™ began tracking distance in 2015 and the longest recorded homer in franchise history. The 505-foot shot landed on the left-field concourse. Story hit his third homer of the game in his third at-bat in the sixth inning for the go-ahead run and his fifth blast of the three-game series.

"That's pretty cool," the soft-spoken Story said after hearing about the record-breaking distance of his second shot. "There's been a lot of big home runs here, a lot of big power guys. I'll take it."
