The Boston Red Sox provided a thrilling moment for their fans less in just the second inning of the 2018 season.
Sox second baseman Eduardo Nunez hit a fly ball to left-center field and Tampa Bay Rays outfielders Denard Span and Kevin Kiermaier couldn’t make a play, and the ball rolled toward the wall at Tropicana Field.
Nunez ran as fast as he could around the bases and came all the way home for an inside-the-park homer. Xander Bogaerts, who doubled earlier in the inning, also scored on the HR to put the Red Sox up 3-0 in the second inning.
Here’s a look at the crazy play.
The Red Sox hadn’t hit an inside the park home run on Opening Day in several decades.
The Red Sox also hit an inside-the-park homer in their final game of last season when Rafael Devers accomplished the feat in Game 4 of the 2017 American League Division Series against the Houston Astros.
