Kiké Hernandez was the biggest bat for the Boston Red Sox in their ALDS with the Tampa Bay Rays that ended on Monday night. So it was fitting to see him be the one to end the series with a walk-off RBI.

Hernandez was batting in the bottom of the ninth with runners on second and third and one out in a 5-5 game between his Red Sox and the Rays in Game 4 at Fenway Park. Hernandez ended up hitting a sac fly to center that scored pinch runner Danny Santana from third.

Hernandez is known for his sense of humor, so it’s no surprise he had a joke about his at-bat. He said he felt like he would have to hit a home run when it was originally the slow-running Christian Vazquez at third base. However, when the Red Sox lifted Vazquez for Santana, he felt the pressure lift.
