Unlikely Veterans Nick Johnson, Scott Podsednik Turning Back the Clock With Rare Power Displays (Video)

Nick Johnson hit two home runs against the Red Sox on Wednesday afternoon, prompting many fans to react with surprise. Not that Johnson is hitting home runs, necessarily, but because that’s a name that fans haven’t heard in quite some time.

While Johnson is only 33, before this season he hadn’t played in the big leagues since 2010. In fact, he hadn’t hit two homers in a game since 2006. Oddly enough, that’s the same year that Eric Chavez last had a multi-home run game… before he played the Red Sox earlier this year.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is trying to get to the bottom of this strange coincidence. See more in the video above.
