Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost speaks with reporters following a 6-2 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Aug. 6, 2019. Pitcher Jakob Junis allowed one run in six innings, and slugger Jorge Soler hit his 30th and 31st homers.

Forget hitting one over the Green Monster, Royals designated hitter Jorge Soler crushed a home run on Tuesday night that left Fenway Park in Boston.

Soler later hit another home run and has 31 on the season, just seven shy of the Royals’ single-season record, which was set by Mike Moustakas in 2018.

Both of Soler’s home runs came off Boston’s Andrew Cashner.

In the top of the fourth inning, Soler connected on a four-seam fastball from Cashner, hitting the ball 412 feet. It had an exit velocity of 111 mph.

The Royals shared video of the blast, which was Soler’s first of the night:
