Rafael Devers continues to provide the Red Sox with timely hits.
Devers gave Boston a 5-4 lead over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday with a three-run shot in the fifth inning at Fenway Park. The young third baseman was down 0-2 against Aaron Slegers but nonetheless capitalized on the unfavorable situation, jumping all over a 93 mph fastball.
Devers’ clutch blast was Boston’s second round-tripper of the fifth frame. Kevin Plawecki trimmed the Halos’ lead to 4-2 with his first homer of the season, a solo shot that travelled well over the Green Monster.
