The night before Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was to play in his first game at Coors Field, he got a phone call from his dad.
While Coors Field is undoubtedly a hitters haven, Guerrero Jr. is an equal-opportunity depositor of home runs.
Of his first six career homers, two have come at Oracle Park in San Francisco, among the most difficult venues in which to homer, and one at Coors Field on Friday night, a 436-foot shot over the center-field wall.
Though he was mired in a 4-for-26 slump when he arrived in Denver, Guerrero went 3-for-4 on Friday, adding a single and a double.
Guerrero entered Saturday with four batted balls with an exit velocity of 115 mph or greater this season.
