Watch: Benintendi's strike nails Altuve at home to preserve Red Sox win

Don't test Andrew Benintendi.

The Red Sox left fielder made a brilliant throw home in the eighth inning, nailing Jose Altuve to preserve a 6-5 lead.

Boston would go on to win by that very score, and as brilliant a strike as Benintendi threw, teammate and catcher Christian Vazquez deserves a ton of credit for getting the tag on the Houston Astros second baseman.
