Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and two runs Tuesday against the Tigers.
Hernandez reached base multiple times for the first time in his last four starts. His effort was highlighted by a leadoff homer in the eighth inning -- his fourth long ball of the season. Hernandez hasn't had a particularly inspiring start to his first campaign in Boston, as he's managed only a .234/.291/.421 line across 117 plate appearances. However, he has managed to score 18 runs thanks to frequently leading off for the strong Red Sox lineup.
