Hanley Ramirez had been in a mild power slump this season. Until Tuesday night.
Ramirez launched a 468-foot home run off the light tower on the Green Monster in left-center field that gave the Red Sox a 3-0 lead in the first inning.
It is the second-longest homer of the season. Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton had a 475-foot blast earlier this season.
It was Ramirez’s fourth home run of the season.
