Grady Sizemore Homers In His First Regular-Season Game Since 2011 (Video)

Grady Sizemore on Monday played in his first regular-season game since Sept. 22, 2011. The 31-year-old celebrated the occasion by going 2-for-4 with a home run.

Sizemore, whose tremendous spring training earned him the Red Sox’s starting center field job, homered in his second at-bat of Boston’s Opening Day loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Monday. It was Sizemore’s first regular-season long ball since July 15, 2011.

Sizemore, who also singled in his first at-bat Monday, said after the game he broke his bat on the fourth-inning blast. The wind was swirling at Camden Yards, though, and the ball carried just enough.

Sizemore’s solo homer was Boston’s only offense Monday. Nelson Cruz launched a solo homer in the seventh inning to help propel Baltimore to a 2-1 victory over the defending World Series champions.
