Mookie Betts delivers second three-homer game of season

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora

The Boston Red Sox right fielder crushed three dingers in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Kansas City Royals, and he struck again early in Thursday's game against the Texas Rangers.

Wednesday afternoon marked the fourth time Betts has hit least three home runs in a game.

Betts' three-homer game was the fourth of his career, allowing him to supplant Ted Williams for the most games with three home runs in team history.

Encarnacion hit a three-homer in the first, a two-run shot in the second and a solo drive in the eighth.

Mazara drove in five runs while homering in his third straight game and the Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 11-5 on Thursday night, handing former AL Cy Young Award victor David Price his third loss in a row.

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.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Albert Pujols reached 2,998 career hits with a home run and a double, and Mike Trout also homered for Los Angeles.

Kanye receives instant backlash for 'slavery is a choice' remarks
TMZ got Black Lives Matter activist, DeRay Mckesson, on the line to sound off on the seemingly unfactual comments by Ye. Charlamagne said he approached Kanye about the comments he made about slavery . "You hear about slavery for 400 years".

After falling behind in the count 2-1, Kimbrel said he made a very costly mistake to Gordon. The 33-year old catcher is only hitting.183 on the season, however he has tallied 11 RBI's in 23 games played on the season. He was in position to win consecutive starts for the first time this season. That's nothing to do with his health or how he's seeing the ball, his 2017 two-strike approach wasn't conducive for hitting home runs.

Mookie's onslaught through 26 games so far is what the Red Sox organization has seen in the tea leaves for years.

Red Sox: RF Mookie Betts (tight right hamstring) was out of the lineup a third straight game because of a tight right hamstring that forced him out Saturday. This time around two of the three homers were the longest of his career. Before that outburst, the Rangers were 2-6 against left-handed starters this season. Cleveland scored nine runs in the first two innings and never looked back as Edwin Encarnacion belted three homers in the win.

The over has cashed in four of Texas' last seven games.

Drew Pomeranz had his most encouraging start of the season, giving up three runs over six innings.

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).

The Red Sox have won three of their last four games SU.
