Found August 10, 2013 on NESN.com:
Josh Reddick put an end to his slump in a powerful way Friday night. The A’s outfielder was in the midst of an 0-for-19 slump heading into Friday’s contest against the Blue Jays. A first-inning ground out made it 0-for-20, but that was it. Reddick responded with not one, not two, but three home runs in consecutive at-bats — which included his first career opposite-field blast — as the former Red Sox led Oakland to a 13-6 victory in Toronto. That’s certainly one way to end a slump. Check out Reddick’s power surge in the video below. Your browser does not support iframes. Filed under: Headlines, MLB, Stephen Hewitt, Video Non-NESN
