Steve Pearce cannot be stopped.
After two big hits in a comeback win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday, the Boston Red Sox first baseman kept his hot bat going early in Sunday’s Game 5.
After Andrew Benintendi hit a one-out single in the top of the first inning, Pearce stepped in and smashed a first-pitch fastball from Clayton Kershaw into the left-field seats.
Take a look:
The Red Sox are looking to clinch the Fall Classic on Sunday night, and you can’t get a much better start than that.
