Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Angels star Justin Upton hit a home run into a paint can reading: 'Angels home run in the can $1,000,000,' but he's not eligible for the prize. Because the ball bounced. The Angels also lost the game 6-3 to the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday at Angel Stadium. But back to this home run. Upton stepped up to bat in the bottom of the ninth inning with his team trailing 6-2. He took two balls before working the count to 3-2. He turned Cody Allen's seventh offering into a 448 foot blast to left field. The ball cleared the left field fence and took a hop off of the grass, before landing in the giant paint can. Sherwin Williams has a deal with the team that it will donate
