Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts delivered Boston’s most recent long ball deep into the night at Fenway Park during Tuesday’s Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

Bogaerts sent a 83 mph slider from Houston Astros starter Zack Greinke 413 feet to the Green Monster seats in left field. It erased Boston’s previous one-run deficit and gave the hosts a 2-1 lead in the first inning while scoring Rafael Devers (walk).

The Red Sox now have a franchise-record 21 home runs in the postseason despite Tuesday’s Game 4 being just their ninth playoff game. They’re coming off a Game 3 win in which they recorded four.
