The Eight Homer Game report

by Bill Chuck on September 5, 2013

Well if you are curious, chances are really good that if your team hits eight homers in game, your team will win.

In last night’s 20-4 win over the Tigers, the Red Sox became the 21st team to hit eight-plus homers in a game since 1916 (and win).
