GIF: Shane Victorino hits 2 homers, drives in 7

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Victorino led the Red Sox against the Orioles with one of the best games of his career.

The Red Sox had a huge win over the Orioles on Tuesday night to kick off a three-game series, and much of the credit for the size of said win goes to right fielder Shane Victorino, who had one of the best games of his entire career.

In the bottom of the third, the lefty-mashing Victorino hit a two-run laser right into the glove of someone in the first row of the Monster seats:

Shanf-hr-1

He would follow-up that shot with another rocket, this time a little more to left-center, and in the second row of the monster seats, in the bottom of the fifth inning:

Shanf-hr-2

But wait, there's more! Victorino would plate another pair of runners with a two-run double to right field in the bottom of the seventh, putting the Red Sox up 11-2, with seven of those RBI courtesy of Shanf.

He contributed in other ways, too. He drew a walk in the first inning and came around to score, and was hit by a pitch in the fourth in between the homers. He was on base five times in five trips to the plate, drove in seven, scored four runs, and collected 10 total bases. Not bad for a night's work.
