Eric Hosmer put the Boston Red Sox in an early hole Monday night, but Jackie Bradley Jr. evened the score.
The Red Sox trailed the Kansas City Royals by two runs in the fourth inning at Kauffman Stadium when Bradley stepped to the plate with a runner on first and no outs against Jason Hammel.
Bradley cranked a 0-1 fastball deep over the right field fence to tie the game.
Take a look at the blast below.
It was Bradley’s ninth homer of the season and there was no doubt about it.
The center fielder now is tied for second on the team in home runs and fourth on the club in RBIs.
