Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine didn’t need to be so exclusionary in a memorable Nike commercial of yesteryear — chicks aren’t the only ones who dig the long ball. The paying customers at Fenway — as well as those watching at home or listening to Dave and Joe — enjoyed the heck out of yesterday’s 10-5 victory over the Angels that featured four Red Sox homers, including two from catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

David Ortiz and Mike Carp also went deep for the Sox, who won their third straight series before embarking on a seven-game road trip through Tampa Bay and Baltimore as they continue running the gauntlet of baseball’s iron.

The Red Sox have won in plenty of ways en route to the American League’s best record, but home runs haven’t necessarily topped the list. They began the day ranked first in the AL in runs (326), but just sixth in homers (70).

That’s likely to change now that the warm weather has arrived, and a power surge will just make their offense that much more dynamic.

“We’ve got a lot of guys with pop here that can hit homers,” said first baseman Mike Napoli. “That’s going to be an advantage for us.”

The conditions certainly were perfect for homers yesterday. The gametime temperature hit 77 degrees, the winds blew out of the west-northwest at 10 mph, and most importantly, the Angels started Joe Blanton.

Blanton began the day having allowed 10 homers, five off the league lead. For his career, he has allowed over 180 long balls, including a high of 30 in 2009 with the Phillies.

In nature, those conditions might lead to the formation of a super cell capable of producing a tornado. At Fenway yesterday, they produced moonshots.

“We had a very good day offensively,” understated Red Sox manager John Farrell.

The most important homer of the day belonged to Ortiz — a three-run blast that gave the Sox a 4-1 lead in the third. Ortiz’s 13th home run also gave him 48 RBI.

The most impressive shots of the day probably came off the bat of Saltalamacchia, however. The big catcher slammed one off the tarp in dead center in the sixth (going back-to-back with Carp), and then added a three-run homer to the first row of bleachers there in the seventh that finished the scoring for the Sox.

Saltalamacchia now has eight home runs on the season to go along with a .273 average and .856 OPS. His .515 slugging percentage ranks second in the big leagues among starting catchers, trailing only Braves revelation Evan Gattis (.592), even as Saltalamacchia toils in relative anonymity.

“Salty has a lot of power,” Napoli said. “He’s a big, strong kid. He hit, what, 25 last year? He definitely has it. We don’t overlook it. We know he has it.”
