Mookie Betts Sets New Red Sox Record With Fourth Three-Homer Game

  • Mookie Betts

The Boston Red Sox look for a spark of consistency here after splitting their last 10 games. Updates with new lead. Former AL Cy Young Award victor David Price lost his third consecutive start.

Betts added a sacrifice fly and two-run double to complete a four-RBI game.

The first curtain call of the season at Fenway Park went to Mookie Betts. The over is also 8-3 in the Rangers' last 12 home games versus a left-handed starter, 5-0-1 in their last six games overall, and is 5-1-1 in their last seven games against the American League East. Betts finished with four RBIs.

"I know what I can do and I know I have the ability to drive the ball, and I'm kind of showing it". Mazara's sixth homer gave Texas a 10-3 lead. "He hit.400 one year".

Yesterday, Betts' latest record-smashing performance broke a 61-year-old mark held by Teddy Ballgame, as the 25-year-old victimized Danny Duffy for three homers in three consecutive at bats to power the Sox to a 5-4 win over Kansas City. Only 16 players since 1908 have had four three-homer games and the lone active player is Albert Pujols of the Angels.

"I didn't know", Betts said of his new PR. "He just keeps rolling".

The Dodgers' ended a four-game skid and won for the first time in nine tries at Phoenix as Alex Verdugo doubled and scored twice in a 2-1 decision over the Diamondbacks.

Price allowed nine runs, his most since 2013 with Tampa Bay. Ted Williams is the only other Red Sox player with as many as three three-homer games.


"It's all about pitch mix right now", Cora said. If he gets hit, he gets hit. Paxton left with a 2-0 lead.

It's a big outing for Price, who got off to a great start to the season but has endured back-to-back ugly outings.

- Hector Velazquez entered in relief and threw a wild pitch to Mazara, allowing a run to score.

Price said he feels fine physical and felt he had one of his better changeups this season.

"And then with two strikes, like I told him, we talk about it". "I didn't command the baseball very well". Boston challenged the call, which was overturned on the replay that showed Nunez pulled his right arm away to avoid the tag while reaching around with his left arm to grab the bag.

Carlos Perez was added to the Rangers roster a day after the catcher was received on a waiver clam from Atlanta.

Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor also homered to support Corey Kluber, who improved to 5-1 despite yielding solo homers by Joey Gallo, Nomar Mazara and Juan Centeno. Last year, playing against the Red Sox when I was on the Astros coaching staff, the scouting report was very simple with him.

Cueto was placed on the disabled list Tuesday night with inflammation in his right elbow. INF Brock Holt (left hamstring) is set for early BP on Friday. The Rangers staked him to a four-run lead before he had even taken the hill, but Minor managed to give it all back by the end of the third inning. "Beltre, he is progressing", Banister said.
