Shane Victorino Provides Offensive Pop for Red Sox, But Aggressive Baserunning Backfires (Video)

1,261

Shane Victorino drove in both of the Red Sox’ runs on Saturday, but his bid to score one of his own was denied by Toronto’s Jose Bautista.

After doubling to open the sixth inning, Victorino tried to come all the way home on a single by Dustin Pedroia. But Bautista was having none of that, as the right fielder, who gave the Jays a 2-0 lead with a solo home run in the top of the frame, nailed Victorino at the plate with a perfect throw. Bautista went on to add another homer in the eighth, and Toronto emerged with a 6-2 win.

Hear what Victorino had to say about the outfield assist in the video above.
