It’s safe to say Hanley Ramirez is heating up.
Ramirez stepped up to the plate with two outs and a runner on first during the first inning of the Boston Red Sox’s game against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday night at Fenway Park. Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks left a fastball up and over the middle of the plate and the Red Sox designated hitter didn’t miss it.
Ramirez launched the ball over the Green Monster and onto Lansdowne Street to give the Red Sox an early 2-0 lead.
Take a look at the monster blast below.
That ball was crushed, which is something that Ramirez has been doing regularly since the beginning of the 2015 season.
It was the second game in a row Ramirez has crushed a round-tripper.
