MLB: Comet! Hunter Renfroe connects kilometer HR at Fenway Park

The gardener Hunter Renfroe of the Boston Red Sox, sent an impressive home run to center field to regain Boston’s lead on Tuesday against the Rays, which ultimately was useless, as Tampa Bay rallied from a 4-1 adverse and ended up beating 8-4 at Red Sox with seven unanswered runs in the last four innings.

However, the hit of the night was in the fourth inning and from Renfroe, who just faced his former team and the rookie. Colombian Luis Patiño, who was hit by a 96 mph center fastball, a doddle for ‘hunter’ Hunter, on a 2-2 count:

Overall, the ball was going that way from Patiño, but it came out there after the strong contact of Renfroe, putting the 108 seam to travel throughout the central garden of Fenway Park. It was 420 feet that ‘doña blanca’ traveled.

The ball hit the top of the Green Monster and almost reached the bleachers, ending up bouncing towards the field of play. It was Renfroe’s HR 19 of the season. He beat Xander Bogaerts and Kevin Plawecki.

Renfroe has been a great acquisition for the Red Sox. He is a very solid player. He has a constant presence in the middle of order and plays great defense. Great pickup from Chaim Bloom last offseason.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
