Yankees’ Little League home run marks another low in the Red Sox season

One game in Wednesday’s game against the New York Yankees summed up the Boston Red Sox’s entire season in 2022.

In the top of the fifth inning, Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres lined into rightfield to score the first run of the evening. That should have been the only run scored, but the Red Sox had other ideas.

Catcher Connor Wong tried to catch Torres in a rundown between first and second base, but his throwing error to first base went down the rightfield line. The result was a three-run Little League homer.

Unfortunately for Red Sox fans, the gaffe was a familiar sight. It brought flashbacks to the inside-the-park grand slam that Boston awarded to the Toronto Blue Jays in July. It’s never a good sign if you’ve allowed two such games in the same year.
