Watch Will Middlebrooks Hit Three Homers
Will Middlebrooks had quite a Sunday afternoon. In a 13-0 win over the Blue Jays, the 24-year-old Red Sox third baseman hit three home runs, including a fifth-inning moonshot that reached Rogers Centre’s second deck. (It landed to the left of the massive Budweiser sign.) It apparently sailed 449 feet, but that seems like a conservative estimate.
Middlebrooks finished the day 4-for-5 with four runs and four RBIs. It was the kind of performance that another twentysomething Boston infielder put together back on May 10, 1999.
