Hunter Renfroe provides the late game heroics with his bat and defense

Hunter Renfroe should win a Gold Glove for his play in the outfield this season. The right fielder came up huge tonight with two outfield assists and hit the game winning home run for the Red Sox. 

The Red Sox came into Wednesday night’s game dropping two straight to the Rays and failing to capitalize on the Yankees losing to Toronto. The story on the night began with Nathan Eovaldi on the mound. 

Eovaldi was stellar for the Sox, the right-hander pitched like a true stopper on Wednesday. The righty went seven solid innings yielding three hits, striking out eight Rays batters and gave up two walks. 

Eovaldi was special on the mound but Renfroe was the true hero. 

Hunter Renfrow was the hero with his bat and arm

Renfroe hit a two-run, game-winning home run in the eight inning. The Sox were trailing 1-0 until Renfroe hit a mammoth home run into deep left center. Renfroe’s home run went 409 feet into the Green Monster. The two-run blast would score Kyle Schwarber who reached earlier in the inning.

Renfroe’s home run was his 27th of the season and the slugger now has 85 RBIs on the season. 

In addition to Renfroe’s huge home run, he would have the game winning assist from deep center field to win it for the Sox. 

Game winning assist from the outfield

Red Sox Manager Alex Cora would turn to Hansel Robles to slam the door on the Rays in the ninth. Robles would quickly get the first two outs, striking out the Rays first two batters.

What would come next was absolutely bananas.

The Rays Joey Wendle would smoke a Robles pitch to center field. Red Sox center fielder Danny Santana would attempt to dive and make a spectacular catch but missed the ball. Wendle would begin to round second and extend his double into a triple. 

Renfroe however had other plans, he backed up Santana and would throw a bullet into third pegging out Wendle to end the game. The outfield assist was Renfroe’s second of the game and his 16th of the season. 

Renfroe will earn $3 million this season, which is an absolute steal for Chaim Bloom. It’s time to start to give Bloom credit for some of his great moves.
