Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Twins.

Ramirez clocked his three-run shot off Twins starter Tommy Milone in the third inning. He has been on an absolute molten hot streak of late and has five homers and 12 RBI over his last five games. The recent power binge has boosted his overall batting line to .282/.362/.459. He can pair that with 13 homers and 60 RBI over 340 at-bats. Ramirez has always possessed a tantalizing power bat, but he has reached the 20-homer mark just once in the last six seasons.

Hanley Ramirez blasted three two-run home runs to power the Red Sox to an 11-7 victory over the Giants on Wednesday.

The trio of longballs give him 11 for the season to go with 50 runs, 54 RBI, seven steals and a .285 batting average.

Ramirez tweaked his side when he took a massive hack with the bases loaded in the sixth inning of Wednesday's showdown with the Rays. As the slugger explained it, "Side got really tight. I talked to John [Farrell] and we’re just trying to prevent something big. He told me that we’re not going to put your season on the line. Take care of that and be ready to go Friday." His readiness for game action should become more clear following the Red Sox off day on Thursday.

Ramirez is hitting just .179/.273/.269 in 67 June at-bats. He struck out twice in key spots during Tuesday's loss to the White Sox. His move to seventh in the lineup shouldn't be considered a long-term adjustment, more a breather.
