Boston Red Sox: Mookie Betts already entering record books

  • Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts

The Kansas City Royals just wouldn't stop rallying against the Red Sox. The Red Sox were 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position off Minor, who is 3-1 with a 4.36 ERA and has held opponents to a.179 batting average with runners in scoring position. Red Sox manager Alex Cora also said his lefty is suffering from command issues, and he thinks there's not much separation in the velocity between his fastballs and his secondary pitches.

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.

Betts missed three days with a tight hamstring and promptly returned with a three-homer game against the Kansas City Royals - his second three-homer game of the young season.

The Boston Red Sox are paying a visit to Globe Life Park to face the Texas Rangers. Martinez added a two-run homer for Boston, which had a three-homer game for the 31st time in team history.

It appears that Mookie Betts is fully healthy.

MINNEAPOLIS - Fernando Romero pitched four-hit ball into the sixth inning in his major league debut, giving Minnesota a badly needed boost.

Drew Pomeranz (1-1) allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings after serving up three homers in a Friday loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.




Duffy allowed five runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Since 2016, Betts has 11 multi-homer games, tying him with Baltimore's Manny Machado for second most in the majors over that period. The over has cashed in one of those games, compared to four that've gone under in such games. It was Betts' fourth career 3-HR game, setting a new franchise record. Brandon Crawford drove in three runs to help San Francisco finish 7-3 on their 10-game homestand. They own a poor 4.68 team ERA, placing them 24th in the Major leagues. Before that outburst, the Rangers were 2-6 against left-handed starters this season.

4-0 in their last 4 Thursday games.

The Red Sox have won three of their last four games SU. They had 22 homers through 30 games last season.

Texas games have a 16-13-2 over/under record so far in 2018.

Southpaw David Price is projected to start for the visiting Red Sox.

Gallo performed well against left-handed pitching at home in 2017, slashing.259/.429/.556 in 70 such plate appearances (his overall season line was.209/.332/.536). But he was replaced by Paul Sewald (0-2) to begin the fifth.
