Steve Pearce has been a member of the Red Sox for a little over a week now, but Monday was his first opportunity to don a Boston uniform inside Fenway Park.
Suffice to say he made a nice impression in his first at-bat.
During Monday’s game against the Texas Rangers, Pearce stepped in with two down and one runner on in the first inning. With the count full, the righty took a 95 mph outside fastball from Mike Minor into the Green Monster seats.
Take a look:
It was the 35-year-old’s fifth homer of the season.
