Leadoff, ninth … it doesn’t matter. Christopher Morel is on another blazing hot streak and it is an absolute joy to watch.
To recap, in case you forgot: After struggling for a couple weeks, Morel was moved out of the leadoff spot on Wednesday night, and he responded by going 2-4 with a HR. Then, in the same spot last night, Morel went 5-5 with a double and a homer. Back in the leadoff spot against a lefty this afternoon, Morel just his his THIRD homer in as many games to tie the Red Sox in the bottom of the sixth inning!
Morel now has 8 homers overall and is slashing .282/.340/.506 (132 wRC+) on the season.
This homer was 436 feet, his one yesterday was 440 feet, and the one on Wednesday was 429 feet. Those are BOMBS.
