Watch: Rockies' Trevor Story clobbers 471-foot HR, sets team record

Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Trevor Story set a franchise record for home runs by a shortstop in the Colorado Rockies' 10-3 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The 471-foot bomb came in the bottom of the third inning during the triumph on Thursday at Coors Field in Denver. Story now has 33 home runs on the season.

"I really don't care too much about [the distance]," Story told reporters. "Maybe later it's cool to see how far it went. Just trying to put a good swing on the ball. If it goes over the fence, that's all that matters."

Nolan Arenado hit the first long ball of the night, blasting a solo shot off of Diamondbacks starter Matt Koch in the bottom of the first inning. A.J. Pollock tied the score with his own solo bomb in the next inning for the Diamondbacks.
