Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run into a bachelorette party

Bachelor and bachelorette parties are supposed to be a good time. Everyone who is friends with the bride or groom comes back together to celebrate how cool their friend is. The company alone is enough for a fun day or weekend, but some well-planned activities and surprises really make a bachelorette party one to remember.
During the third inning of Saturday's game against the Orioles, Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run home run to right field and gave a bachelorette party of Orioles fans quite the pleasant surprise. That's right, the homer went right to them.
Even though the dinger increased the Yankees' lead to 4-1, that didn't seem to get in the way of their excitement:

In what could perhaps be (over)read as perfect symbolism, Stanton's home run scored the Yankees two runs. At the very least, there's an incoherent book-club discussion to be had about what knocking in two runs with one swing has to say about the joining together of two individuals in marriage.
