BOSTON -- When Max Kepler squared up a sixth-inning fastball from Boston's Rick Porcello, it almost looked as if he were swinging a golf club instead of a baseball bat.
Kepler smacked a 409-foot, two-run blast off the struggling Red Sox ace, and he finished with three RBIs on the night to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 4-1 win on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.
"He hits 1-irons out of the ballpark," Twins right fielder Robbie Grossman said of Kepler's power swing. "It's pretty special the kind of juice that he creates."
