Signature Sundays - Xander Bogaerts, Fenway Park Edition
Anyway, the game itself was entertaining as the Sox took it to the absolutely terrible Phillies 9-2 on the strength of an 8-run 4th inning and a solid complete game effort from Wade Miley. We saw a bit of history as David Ortiz hit his 30th home run of the season, surpassing Ted Williams for most 30 home run seasons in a Red Sox uniform (9).
The play of the day though was Xander Bogaerts' "little league grand slam", which was a bases clearing double combined with a comedy of errors and an amazing slide. I can't really describe it here, you'll just have to see it for yourself.
I picked this one up all the way back in April for just $10.51. After the season Xander's had I'm sure I could flip it for a profit at this point, though I have every intention of hanging onto it. Bogaerts is swatting an impressive .320, and is third in the AL in hits (just two off Jose Altuve's pace).
