Christian Vazquez and Andrew Benintendi erased a deficit in the most exciting way possible.
With the Boston Red Sox trailing 3-2 in the top of the seventh inning against the Houston Astros, the two hitters turned the game around, all with two outs.
Vazquez first tied the game up off Houston reliever Will Harris, who was on the mound trying to preserve the lead Justin Verlander and the Astros’ offense gave him. But with a 3-1 count, Vazquez smacked a moonshot off a 91-mph cutter over the heart of the plate into the left-field seats.
Take a look at the blast:
Then, after Jackie Bradley Jr. walked the following at-bat, Benintendi followed up Vazquez’s dinger with a monster shot of his own. The center fielder took a 1-2 fastball upstairs from Harris into the right field mezzanine to give the Sox a 5-3 advantage.
What a way to turn the game around.
