BOSTON (AP) -- Marcell Ozuna hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career and finished with six RBIs, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 10-3 rout of the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
Ozuna, who was 3 for 5, hit a two-run homer in the first inning, a solo shot in the seventh and a three-run blast in the eighth. It was the eight-year veteran's second multi homer effort in the last 10 games and the 10th of his career.
"He's got a really good idea what he's doing at the plate," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "He's been unbelievable for a four-week, five-week span. That's got the makings of a really monster 162-game season."
