Watch Red Sox’s Steve Pearce Smack Go-Ahead, 456-Foot Homer In Game 3


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.
