Adrian Gonzalez picked an opportune time to rediscover his power stroke.
Homerless in 63 at-bats dating back to June 24, Gonzalez came to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning of last night's game against the Chicago White Sox with two runners on and the score tied.
With one sweet swing, Gonzalez ended his power outage and propelled the Red Sox to their third win in four games since the All-Star break. Gonzalez' blast off of Chicago reliever Leyson Septimo landed in the front row of the Monster seats. The Sox added another run to pull out a 5-1 win in front of a season-high 38,334 fans at Fenway Park.
