Jackie Bradley Jr. burst out of his 1-for-30 slump in a big way Saturday, going 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a game-tying, two-run home run in the ninth inning as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6.
Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday the key to Bradley’s breakout was staying consistently aggressive and continuing to swing the bat — which also probably made it frustrating, because things just weren’t going his way.
“He wasn’t tentative or passive with his thoughts or his actions,” Lovullo said on “Red Sox First Pitch” before Sunday’s game. “He had the same aggressive mentality and it just wasn’t working out.”
