Chicago Cubs starting pitchers have had difficulty with Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi thus far in their weekend series.
The 22-year-old’s power surge continued Saturday afternoon as he crushed a long ball over the Red Sox’s bullpen in Boston’s 7-4 loss.
And as crazy as it sounds, Benintendi’s blast wasn’t even the most impressive home run in the contest. Just two innings before, Hanley Ramirez walloped a 469-foot round-tripper, the longest home run hit so far this season.
It seems like Boston’s power finally is starting to come around.
