It had been a while since Christian Vazquez hit a home run, but he ended his drought with a bang Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

The Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins were locked in a scoreless tie when the catcher stepped to the plate in the bottom of the second inning and put a charge into a 2-2 fastball from Hector Santiago.

The two-run blast was Vazquez’s first homer since May 1, 2016, against the New York Yankees. And it got out of Fenway Park in a hurry.

Not a bad time to hit your first homer of the season.
