With a full extension dive for a sinking line drive, left fielder Alex Verdugo called game.
In the first game of Wednesday’s double header against the Minnesota Twins, the Boston Red Sox found themselves with an opposing runner on second after Jake Cave was walked by closer Matt Barnes and then stole second.
Luis Arráez then came up to bat with two outs for the Twins. He hit a hard line drive on a 3-1 count that looked like it might drop in the right spot to help Minnesota tie the game.
That is, if Verdugo weren’t in left field.
Boston looks to make it nine in a row with the second game of Wednesday’s double-header.
