Jackie Bradley Jr. didn’t waste any time going to work against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.

The Boston Red Sox center fielder had seen exactly one pitch in the team’s game in Minneapolis, and he sent it out of the yard for a three-run homer. Bradley’s dinger put the Red Sox up 4-0 over the Twins in the first inning.

The home run was Bradley’s 10th of the season, in what has been a spectacular 2016 for the outfielder. Bradley was batting .317 with a .972 OPS going into Saturday’s game. The three RBIs he gained gave him 43 on the season, too.
