Are You Kidding, Kiké Hernández?! Red Sox Star Records Web Gem, Solo Homer

The center field saved runs with a web gem, and then tied the game with a leadoff homer

by

Boston Red Sox center fielder Kiké Hernández had an impeccable five minutes of baseball during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros on Friday.

First, Hernández made a run-saving catch with the bases loaded and two outs in the second inning. It served as some much-needed defensive help for starting pitcher Chris Sale.

Hernández then led off the top of the third inning and hit a solo home run to center field — a no-doubter measuring 448 feet to tie the game.

It started a rally in the third as the Red Sox took a 3-1 lead after the top of the frame.

It also comes after Hernández was Boston’s unofficial MVP of the AL Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
