Javier Baez blows the Detroit Tigers to a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox

Javier Báez took a turn.

On a 2-2 fastball from Boston Red Sox reliever Ryan Brasier, the Detroit Tigers’ new shortstop put the ball in the stands beyond the wall in the left field and beyond the bullpen in the eighth inning.

“It’s Javy Báez,” said Tigers veteran Miguel Cabrera. “He got it.”

The two-race homerun from Báez, who signed a $ 140 million six-year contract this offseason, traveled 396 feet and secured a 3-1 victory for the Tigers in Monday’s series opener against the Red Sox at Comerica Park.

“I was focused,” Báez said. “It’s the biggest key for me, to be focused and try to see the ball as much as I can … For me, the key is to slow everything down. I can be really focused or I can swing for the balls out of the ball. Zone “Just being focused and patient with my plan is key.”
