Christian Vazquez has had quite the last few days.
Just two days after making his major league debut at Fenway Park, the 23-year-old catcher found himself back in the Boston Red Sox lineup Friday against the Houston Astros.
If Vazquez was nervous about performing on the big stage, he didn’t show it. The Puerto Rico native collected his first major league hit and then some, ripping two doubles and collecting three RBIs while scoring two runs in Boston’s 8-3 win.
Vazquez was all smiles after his big game and talked with reporters about the relief that comes with getting that first hit out of the way. Hear what he had to say in the video above.
