WATCH: Marco Hernandez' infield hit helps Red Sox walk it off

The Boston Red Sox had lost back-to-back games heading into their Monday night game against the Chicago White Sox. Marco Hernandez made sure that they didn't make it three straight.

Hernandez came up in the bottom of the ninth inning with the bases loaded and two outs. The White Sox had intentionally walked Jackie Bradley Jr. after a stolen base put runners on second and third, and Hernandez made them pay for that decision. Here's a look at his game-winning infield hit from the game.

While Tim Anderson's throw was on target, Hernandez still beat it by a step and the ball was dropped. Anderson may have had a play at third base, but it would have been a risky play to make. Either way, All the runners were safe and Hernandez was credited for the game-ending RBI.

Hernandez is hitting .241 with a homer and five RBIs in limited action this year. He hadn't played in the major leagues since May of 2017 after suffering a shoulder injury. He needed three separate surgeries to fix the problem and finally made his comeback earlier this year.

Needless to say, this was certainly a sweet moment for Hernandez.
