The Boston Red Sox will have to find a way to keep Eduardo Nunez's bat in the lineup. Since being acquired from the San Francisco Giants on July 26, Nunez has provided all of the offense Red Sox nation could possibly hope for.
In his first five games for Boston, Nunez is batting .500 with a .542 on base percentage and .955 slugging percentage. He has 11 hits in 22 at bats, scored three runs, collected four doubles and even has two stolen bases.
On Tuesday, Nunez continued his offensive excellence in a 12-10 Boston win over the Cleveland Indians. He collected three hits (two doubles and a single) and four runs batted in.
The contest was highlighted by a three run home run by Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez. The native of Bayamon, Puerto Rico recorded the walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Boston the dramatic victory.
With the win, the Red Sox now lead the New York Yankees by half a game in the American League East. They also lead the Rays by four games. The Indians meanwhile still lead the Kansas City Royals by two games in the American League Central.
