Hanley Ramirez has been struggling in August, but the Boston Red Sox designated hitter came up with a huge hit in Monday’s game against the Cleveland Indians.
Ramirez came to the plate with a runner on second and the Red Sox trailing 3-2 in the top of the fifth inning at Progressive Field. Indians starter Mike Clevinger left a 3-2 changeup in the middle of the plate and Ramirez absolutely destroyed it, as the ball left the park in a hurry to give the Red Sox a one-run lead.
The blast was Ramirez’s 19th of the season and chased Clevinger from the game.
