In case you missed, Bobby Dalbec hit an absolute bomb late in Saturday night’s game between the Red Sox and Yankees.
Dalbec hit a two-run blast to left-center field in the eighth inning at Yankee Stadium to give Boston a 7-3 lead over New York. The Red Sox eventually won the game by the same score.
Take a look:
Dalbec’s homer actually made some Red Sox-Yankees history. It was the longest and hardest-hit homer by a Red Sox player at Yankee Stadium since the Statcast era began in 2015. The home run also was the longest of Dalbec’s young career.
Check out these tweets from Red Sox Notes:
Dalbec now has six homers on the season to go along with 24 homers and a .199 batting average. Obviously, he needs to provide more than once-in-a-while homers to Boston’s offense.
The Red Sox will look to complete a three-game sweep of their bitter rivals Sunday night. First pitch from Yankee Stadium is scheduled for 7:08 p.m. ET.
