Bobby Dalbec’s game-tying home run wasn’t enough for Boston to hold on to its lead in the Red Sox’s doubleheader with the Phillies on Tuesday. And Philadelphia won the game in walk-off fashion.
That wasn’t the case in Game 2.
The game was tied up at two runs apiece in the sixth inning as the Red Sox clawed their way back from another early deficit.
Enter Dalbec, who had Jackie Bradley Jr. on first base.
The newly called up first baseman took the second pitch he saw.
That’s Dalbec’s fourth home run in as many games, with five total homers and seven RBIs in the first nine Major League Baseball games of his career.
This game-changing play is presented by Valvoline.
