Rafael Devers made sure the Boston Red Sox left Fenway Park on a high note.

The star third baseman went 3-for-4, including a two-run homer and an RBI double, in his team’s 6-3 win Wednesday over the Philadelphia Phillies. It was the second consecutive three-hit performance for Devers, who finally might be emerging from his season-long funk.

The two-run homer, which was launched off Phillies starter Jake Arrieta, was the biggest hit of the game. Boston was trailing by two runs at the time and appeared headed for a 10th straight defeat.

For those reasons, Devers’ homer is our game-changing play of the week.

Take a look:

What a shot.

Devers is hitting .385 with one homer and five RBIs over his last six games. The 23-year-old now is .231 with three homers and nine RBIs on the season.
