Astros RF Josh Reddick: 'I think everybody in Foxboro heard [the Fenway crowd] chanting my name'

Astros right fielder Josh Reddick spent his first three seasons in the league with the Red Sox so he knows all about the Fenway Park crowd and how rowdy they can get. 

For the first time in quite some time, he experienced it first-hand on Sunday during Game 3 of the ALDS, but it was directed towards him.

In the seventh inning with the Red Sox leading 7-3, Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a fly ball down the right field line that kept curling towards Pesky's Pole. Reddick leaped for it and it went off his glove and into the stands for a three-run home run, which gave the Red Sox a 10-3 lead.

Following the play, the fans in right field began to chant, "Reddick, Reddick, Reddick" and the 30-year-old heard them loud and clear.

"I think everybody in Foxboro heard them chanting my name," he said. "It's good to see they still love me here."

Reddick called the play "unfortunate."

“Just the ball kept curling over. I had enough time to get over, I thought," he said. "I thought I timed the jump pretty well on my part, just in and out. One of those things where it doesn’t go your way. It’s very unfortunate for myself and the team. Nothing you can do. Get one taken away from you to give one right back. It’s just one of those things where it doesn’t go your way.”

Reddick finished the game 2-for-5.
