Steve Pearce was doing it all for the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday.
In Game 3 of the Red Sox’s American League Championship Series matchup with the Houston Astros, Pearce put his defensive abilities at first base on full display, and he also came up with a pretty huge hit at Minute Maid Park.
With the game locked up at two in the top of the sixth inning, Pearce drilled a solo homer to left off Astros reliever Joe Smith.
Take a look:
Did the shot look like an absolute missile? Well, that’s because it was.
In his last at-bat, Pearce was robbed of a would-be RBI extra-base hit thanks to a nice — albeit controversial — grab by Tony Kemp.
Suffice to say he made up for it in the sixth.
