The Houston Astros unloaded on the Boston Red Sox during Tuesday's game at Fenway Park, launching five home runs off Nathan Eovaldi in the second inning to take a 9-1 lead. 

Two of those home runs were hit over the Green Monster, and the same lucky fan caught both home run balls.

This fan caught TWO Astros HRs in the same inning 😳 <a href="https://twitter.com/BRWalkoff?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@brwalkoff</a> <a href="https://t.co/8m2Oahp8SS">pic.twitter.com/8m2Oahp8SS</a>

The Red Sox have struggled this season, and giving up five home runs in one inning tied the MLB record. With that said, it didn't seem like the fan who caught the home run balls was too upset about the score. 

The Red Sox entered Tuesday's game fourth in the AL East with a 14-21 record, one of their worst starts over the last several years.
