Cabrera hit a home run.
My teacher is the world's fastest keyboard typer.

This word consists of kanji with hiragana attached. Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means hit so the vocab is to hit or to pound.
This word uses the kun'yomi reading, which you haven't learned yet, but never fear! A mnemonic is here:
Something is coming toward your face. It's black and spiky and it's definitely going to hit you right in the eye. It's an uni (う). Have you ever seen one of those things before? You definitely aren't going to be happy with whoever is trying to hit you with an uni.
