FanDuel Sportsbook set the odds at +1100 that Duvall would hit the first home run of the game. The center fielder cleared those odds in the blink of an eye with his 20th-round tripper of the season. A $100 wager on Duvall would have netted a $1,200 payout.

The Red Sox return home to begin the final homestand of the season when they open a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. First pitch from Fenway Park is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET. You can watch the game, plus an hour and a half of pregame coverage, on NESN.
