The home run swing for the Boston Red Sox finally returned Friday night in the series opener against the Baltimore Orioles.
Designated hitter Christian Arroyo ended a homer drought for the Red Sox — Boston hadn’t hit a round-tripper in its last six games — when he belted a two-run shot to left-center field at Camden Yards in the top of the second inning.
Check out how Arroyo sent this ball over the wall:
For Arroyo, it was his first home run of the season and it came off of Baltimore right-hander Kyle Bradish, who was making his major league debut.
The last time the Red Sox hit a home run came exactly a week ago when Rafael Devers launched a pitch into the stands at Tropicana Field against the Tampa Bay Rays.
