BOSTON — Hanley Ramirez is enjoying the New York Yankees’ last visit to Fenway Park this season.
The first baseman already made his mark this series with a three-run moon shot off closer Dellin Betances on Thursday to walk off with a 7-5 win, but he apparently wasn’t done taking the Yankees deep. Ramirez hit his second home run in as many days Friday, knocking out a solo homer in the fourth inning off Yankees starter Luis Cessa.
Ramirez actually has been hitting dingers at a crazy rate lately, as he’s hit six in his last nine games, nine in his last 16 and 10 in his last 19. His 18 home runs since the All-Star break trail only Cleveland Indians second baseman Brian Dozier (27) and St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Jedd Gyorko (19).
The blast was Ramirez’s 26th of the season.
