Ranger Choo Shin-soo hits
seventh homer this season
Texas Rangers outfielder Choo Shin-soo belted his seventh home run of the season on Wednesday.
Batting leadoff during the Rangers’ 7-2 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston, Choo cranked the first pitch by Red Sox David Price over the center fence. This was his fourth leadoff homer this season.
After going 2-for-3 with one run and one run batted in, Choo was relieved with tightness in his lower back.
