Steve Pearce had been limited to just five home runs in 2018 entering Thursday.

But thanks to a monster performance in the Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees series opener, the veteran utility boosted his season total in a major way at Fenway Park.

Pearce clubbed three mammoth home runs, helping the Red Sox pick up a convincing 15-7 win over their American League East division rival.

The 35-year-old got his big night started in the third inning when he took Yankees starter CC Sabathia deep to trim New York’s lead to 4-2.

Pearce was right back at it an inning later when his colossal three-run bomb gave the Red Sox a lead which they never would relinquish.

And just for good measure, he tacked on another round-tripper off the light tower in the sixth inning.

Pearce has been around the big leagues for a long time, but this undoubtedly will be a night he never forgets.
