BOSTON — Don’t make Hanley Ramirez angry. You’re not going to like him when he’s angry.
After going 2-for-16 in his first four games out of the All-Star break, the Red Sox first baseman took out his frustrations Wednesday night against the San Francisco Giants in Boston’s 11-7 win.
Ramirez hit a career-high three home runs — one to each part of the field, in order from right to left — and added a career-high six RBI.
His first home run nearly re-created an iconic Fenway Park moment.

He flexed his muscles for his second shot to center field.

Ramirez got hit by a pitch in his third at-bat and was very angry, needing to be walked down the first-base line by an umpire. But then he hit one more homer, a bullet down the left field line.

Ramirez wasn’t the only Red Sox player to go yard Wednesday. Travis Shaw and Sandy Leon also added homers, and the Giants hit two as well.
