Watch: Rays’ Steven Souza hits two home runs on birthday
Tampa Bay Rays rightfielder Steven Souza hit two home runs against the New York Yankees on Sunday, becoming the first player to hit multiple home runs on their birthday since 2012.
Souza is just the 17th player to hit at least two home runs on their birthday since 2000, and joins Justin Morneau and Bernie Williams as the two players to accomplish the feat at Yankee Stadium.
His first homer was a two-run bomb in the top of the first inning with the Rays already leading 3–0.
The second was a solo shot that he drilled just inside the right-field foul pole.
Souza now has three home runs in 51 at-bats this season.
