94 is the loneliest number for the Red Sox

Boston P Dalier Hinojosa has made his MLB debut in the bottom of the 8th with runners on the corners in a remarkable appearance for the Red Sox. Hinojosa wears No. 94, the highest jersey number in Boston history. And he struck out Alex Rodriguez, the first batter he faced. Watch live

Red Sox hit Ellsbury
