UPDATE (Sunday, May 8 at 5:47 p.m. ET): Sandy Leon has done it again. He hit his second home run of the game during the Red Sox’s 10-run ninth inning against the Twins.
Sandy Leon picked up his battery mate Sunday at Target Field.
After Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale surrendered four runs to the Minnesota Twins in the bottom of the fifth inning, Leon got his pitcher off the hook in the top half of the sixth.
The Red Sox catcher stepped to the plate with two outs and a runner on second base against Ervin Santana, and Leon crushed a 1-1 pitch over the right field fence to give Boston a two-run lead.
Boston ultimately won 17-6.
