Andrew Benintendi hit one of the stranger homers at Fenway Park this season in Saturday's game against the New York Yankees.
In the second inning, hit what appeared to be just a soft fly ball down the right-field line. But as it continued to carry, it drew nearer and nearer to the Pesky Pole. The ball ultimately hit what appeared to be the top of the wall before returning to the field.
After it was initially ruled a double, a crew chief review reversed the call and it was ruled a solo home run. You can see the play here, courtesy of the Fox Sports MLB Twitter account.
Benintendi's blast only traveled 310 feet and is one of the shortest homers hit in the MLB this season. According to YES Network researcher James Smythe, the MLB batting average on balls hit the way Benintendi hit his (87.7 exit velocity, 38-degree launch angle, 310 feet) is a paltry .010.
While Benintendi's home run certainly wasn't as big as any of the three homers that Mookie Betts hit against the Yankees the previous night, the end result of Benintendi's Fenway-special homer was the same. The Red Sox were able to tie the Yankees up at 1-1 in the second inning thanks to the hit.
