Salvador Perez’s solo home run on Friday night opened the scoring in the Royals’ 4-2 win at Boston.

It also caused a headache for someone who had a great parking spot outside of Fenway Park. Perez launched a 417-foot homer off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello in the second inning.

The ball cleared the Green Monster in left field as you can see in this video:

A couple of people on Twitter shared photos of where the ball landed — on the windshield of a SUV. That’s not so great for someone.
