It’s taken just a week for the Red Sox to show their slow start offensively was just an anomaly. After scoring just five total runs in their first three games, they’ve scored at least six in every game since. On Sunday, the offense upped their game even higher, blasting six home runs in a 14-9 defeat of the Baltimore Orioles.
The six homers drove in 11 of Boston’s 14 total runs. It’s the first six home run game for the Red Sox since 2018. Boston’s franchise record for team home runs in a game is eight, which they’ve accomplished twice – once in 1977 then again in 2013.
Here’s a look at all six Red Sox home runs, in order, from Sunday’s win.
