The Boston Red Sox’s offensive has struggled mightily so far during the 2017 season, but the bats woke up and then some Saturday afternoon at Target Field.
Desperate for an offensive spark, the Red Sox exploded for an eight-run second inning against the Minnesota Twins.
Chris Young kicked things off when he belted his first home run of the season to put the Sox on the board.
After Twins starter Nick Tepesch loaded the bases, Dustin Pedroia brought everybody home with a bases-clearing double.
Two batters later, Andrew Benintendi smacked a two-RBI double down the left field line, followed by an RBI base knock from Hanley Ramirez. Mitch Moreland plated the Red Sox designated hitter with an RBI double.
The Red Sox are hoping this is a sign of things to come.
