Boston Red Sox shortstop Trevor Story singlehandedly erased a four-run deficit with back-to-back home runs on May 19 against the Seattle Mariners.

The Boston Red Sox are coming off a series win over the Houston Astros at home and began a four-game series against the Seattle Mariners on May 19. The team trailed early 4-0 after a three-run homer by Dylan Moore and an RBI double by Ty France in the top of the second inning.

Red Sox shortstop Trevor Story solved that problem singlehandedly. In the bottom of the second inning, Story hit a two-run homer to dead centerfield. Story was not done, as his next at-bat in the third ended with him hitting another two-run homer, which flew over the Green Monster in left field.

Red Sox fans were understandably pumped after watching Story, who initially struggled in the start of the season, hit back-to-back home run.

The second baseman continued to contribute to the team scoring runs. In the sixth inning, Story hit a single to center field, which advanced Alex Verdugo to third base. However, Julio Rodriguez’s throw to third was wild, allowing Verdugo to score at home.

Entering the game, Story was slashing .205/.293/.320 with two home runs, 16 RBI and 25 hits on the year. Now, in just three innings against the Mariners on a Thursday night, Story matched his home run total through 32 games on the year.

It was quite the start to the game for Story, and Red Sox fans were loving it.
