The Red Sox need more of the recent offensive surge from their outfielders

When Enrique Hernández stepped into the batter’s box to lead off Tuesday night’s matchup between the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago White Sox, he was set to face Dylan Cease, a budding right-handed ace with powerful strikeout material. It was a matchup that certainly didn’t favor Hernández, who went 0-for-2 against Cease when the two types of Sox met up earlier this month and who has been 31 percent below league average offensively this season.

However, Cease’s arsenal didn’t matter much, as Hernández hit a laser beam into the left field seats on the first pitch.
