MLB.com @kengurnick

SAN FRANCISCO -- The home run Corey Seager hit leading off the sixth inning of the Dodgers' 4-3 loss to the Giants on Wednesday night was the longest of his career, estimated by Statcast™ at 462 feet.

The homer off Johnny Cueto, which broke a scoreless tie and sparked a three-run rally, matched the Rangers' Joey Gallo for the longest estimated distance of a homer this season and was the fourth-longest for a Dodger in the Statcast™ era (Joc Pederson has the other three).
