The 5 Best MLB Moments From Sunday

Those bats don't work unless you have power!

Blue Jays Frenzy


Yes, that really happened. The Toronto Blue Jays erupted for eight home runs yesterday, annihilating Boston Red Sox pitching to the tune of 18 runs on 20 hits. It was the most home runs ever by a visiting team at Fenway Park. Wowsers!


Here is the quickfire recap.


Vladimir Guerrero Jr. led the way with his 21st long ball of the season.


Vladdy now leads all of baseball in HR, RBI, OBP, SLG, OPS, and Total Bases. Do you think he is happy?



This young Blue Jays lineup is mouth-watering and you get the feeling they are only just getting started. The sons of former great players are leading the way and created another nice slice of history today.


The Cut4 social media team was on point.


The Mayor of Slam Diego


It’s Fernando Tatis Jr. of course! On the road in New York, with the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning, and the game tied at 2-2, the iconic Padres shortstop unleashed a bomb to left field to condemn the Mets to defeat thanks to a big-time grand slam.


The hop around the bases included a throwback dance move from the seventies. Love it.


The swag chain was the obvious award for one of baseball’s bright young things.


Oly Toledo!


Oakland A’s first baseman Matt Olson has been on a tear recently and shows no sign of stopping after a two-homer day on Sunday. Olson is hitting .289/.374/.610 with 18 homers and 47 RBI so far this year and started things off in the bottom of the third inning against the Royals by taking Kris Bubic deep!


And in his very next plate appearance, he taught the young Royals starter another harsh lesson. Boom! The A’s social media team let everyone know what kind of season they think Oly is having…


His teammates thought so too, honoring him with the golden trident after the game. We really love all these team awards and fun items!


Too Soon Mookie!


The game of baseball brings joy and happiness to so many on and off the field. But Mookie Betts didn’t really assess the situation too well for former Red Sox teammate Brock Holt yesterday, picking the absolute wrong moment to play games. Betts gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead over the Rangers with a solo homer to right field.


Betts was extremely jovial around the bases. Safe to say, Brock was not impressed.


Boom For Real


If you feel glum, just hit play!
