A three-run homer for the Los Angeles Angels in the first inning of Friday’s game proved to be little worry for the Boston Red Sox.
Thanks in part to five dingers, the Red Sox put a beating on the Angels to the tune of a 16-4 victory at Fenway Park in the second contest of a four-game set.
J.D. Martinez, who had a simply monster game, accounted for two of those homers, while Mookie Betts, Rafael Devers and Mitch Moreland had the others.
It was such a slugfest, in fact, that when the Red Sox posted a video of all five blasts, the run time was longer than two minutes.
