Christian Arroyo finally is on the board.
The Red Sox infielder took Jake Odorizzi deep Thursday afternoon to give Boston a 3-0 lead against the Houston Astros. The home run was the first of the season for Arroyo, who returned from the injured list last week.
Take a look:
Arroyo hit three homers in 14 games last season for Boston and showed strong power during spring training. Perhaps his three-run homer against the Astros will open the floodgates.
After their series finale with Houston, the Red Sox head for New York, where they’ll begin a three-game series with the Yankees on Friday.
