Tyler O’Neill makes MLB history with home run on fifth consecutive Opening Day

New Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O’Neill broke a Major League Baseball record tonight against the Seattle Mariners by homering on his fifth consecutive Opening Day.

O’Neill, who was traded to Boston from the St. Louis Cardinals in the offseason, launched a home run during the eighth inning against right-hander Cody Bolton to give the Red Sox a 6-4 lead.

O’Neill, previously spent his entire big-league career with the St. Louis Cardinals, though he was originally drafted by the Mariners in 2013. In six seasons entering Thursday, he’s slashed .248/.318/.458 (112 OPS+) with 78 home runs. O’Neill showed promise before a few injury plagued seasons. He could be in for a big year with the Sox if he can stay healthy.
