Marco Hernandez hit game-tying solo home run in the top of the ninth inning Sunday to help lift the Boston Red Sox to an 8-6 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Hernandez has undergone multiple shoulder surgeries since joining the Red Sox, and now that he’s finally healthy, he’s making a solid impact in Boston’s lineup.

Manager Alex Cora noted in his postgame press conference that he’s very proud of Hernandez for all of the hard work he’s put in over the course of the past few years. The 26-year-old is batting .211 over his past seven games, and even though there’s room for improvement, it’s a good start.
