Alex Verdugo absolutely launched a homer Thursday night.
In the top of the seventh inning with the Red Sox up 6-1, Verdugo roped a solo shot into right field. It went quite a ways and got out in a hurry, putting Boston up by the deciding score in their doubleheader sweep of the Minnesota Twins.
The Red Sox put the highlight of the homer on Instagram, and former Sox outfielder Shane Victorino shared his thoughts.
“That got out of there fast ?,” Victorino wrote.
Indeed, it did.
Verdugo and the Red Sox get back at it Thursday afternoon in the series finale against the Twins. First pitch is set for 1:10 p.m. ET, with pregame coverage on NESN beginning at noon.
