Eduardo Nunez has been red-hot at the plate since joining the Boston Red Sox, entering Sunday’s game against the rival New York Yankees batting a blistering .390 with four homers in his first 13 games.
Nunez, leading off the game, appeared to have another hit to add to his collection, until Aaron Hicks tracked down this would-be gapper to rob him.

Hicks has been Nunez’s Kryptonite over the weekend series. With the Red Sox down 5-3 and the bases loaded in the ninth inning of Friday’s game, Nunez attempted to advance to third on a deep flyout off the bat of Andrew Benintendi, only to be doubled up on the cannon from Hicks.
