Red Sox outfielder Hunter Renfroe drives in a handful
The Minnesota Twins jumped on the Red Sox early during a visit to Fenway Park in August to take a 3-1 lead midway through the game. Hunter Renfroe quickly flipped the script in the bottom of the fourth inning with a three-run homer against Twins starter Griffin Jax to put the Red Sox ahead by a run.
Boston would tack on five more runs in the following inning, capped by a two-run blast to left field by Renfroe that chased Jax from the game. Minnesota’s starter gave up nine earned runs with Renfroe responsible for driving in five of them.
The Twins rallied over then next two innings to cut the lead to one. A Kike Hernandez two-run homer gave the Red Sox a cushion to work with, which proved vital when Matt Barnes coughed up a homer to Josh Donaldson in the ninth. Boston would hang on to win the game 11-9 but they would have been in danger of falling short without the pair of home runs from Renfroe.
Renfroe finished the day 2-for-4 with the two home runs and five RBI. It was his second multi-homer game of the year and the RBI total set a season-high.
