Watch: Red Sox blast three home runs in first inning in London

JD Martinez

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees showed fans in London what an offensive explosion looks like with their 17-13 slugfest on Saturday, and that theme continued on Sunday.

After the two teams combined for six home runs in their first game at London Stadium, the Red Sox went deep three times in the bottom of the first on Sunday. Xander Bogaerts got things started with a two-run shot, and JD Martinez immediately followed with a solo homer of his own.

Catcher Christian Vazquez then belted a solo shot two batters later.

Depending on who you ask, the fans in London are either getting treated to some great baseball or some really bad baseball. They appear to be quite knowledgeable about the game judging by the reception they gave one umpire, so we’re guessing they enjoy the long ball just as much as we do back in America.
