BOSTON — The Red Sox’s outfield didn’t meet Joe Kelly’s request, but it still put on a show at Fenway Park on Monday.
Boston held on for a 5-3 Opening Day win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, thanks in large part to a three-run home run by rookie left fielder Andrew Benintendi.
The Red Sox’s outfield started the tradition last year of doing a victory dance after wins, and Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts carried that tradition into 2017 — with a little twist.
We don’t hate it.
The Red Sox are projected to win their fair share of games this season, so we could see a whole lot more dancing going forward.
