Watch: Eduardo Nunez hits 3-run home run over Green Monster

Eduardo Nunez may have delivered the knockout punch in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

Nunez, a pinch-hitter, was batting against Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Alex Wood in the bottom of the 7th inning and had a 1-0 count with two on and two outs. He got a breaking ball low and in and golfed it out of Fenway Park, clearing the Green Monster in left to put Boston up 8-4.
