Mookie Betts, Edwin Encarnacion carry teams with monster 3-HR games

Grant SmithMay 06, 2018

David Price (2-3, 3.78 ERA) will get the ball for the Sox in the series opener Thursday night and will be opposed by Mike Minor (2-1, 4.33 ERA). He teed off against Royals starter Danny Duffy, going deep in the fourth, fifth, and seventh innings of the Red Sox 5-4 victory.

Boston was two outs away from a victory when right-hander Craig Kimbrel served up the ninth-inning homer to Gordon.

The Red Sox begin a 10-game road trip after winning two of three games in the series against Kansas City, which is tied for the second fewest wins (eight) in baseball.

After Wednesday's slate of action, Betts now stands alone atop the Red Sox list of most three home run games. 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. "Just to know my name is amongst his is pretty cool". Cesar Hernandez led off the game with a home run and Maikel Franco had two doubles and drove in a run for the Phillies.

"I was slow because it was so exciting", Martinez said. "It's more surprising, kind of, to everybody else". "I was running, but I wanted it to last". "It's just a matter of using the whole field and driving it everywhere". 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.

Mets ace Jacob deGrom had to leave Wednesday's start after four shutout innings because of a hyperextended pitching elbow.

Meanwhile in Cleveland, Encarnacion posted six RBIs to personally outscore the Texas Rangers in a 12-4 win. Boston is putting up 5.68 runs per game this season while allowing 3.43 per contest.

Moments later, Keller showed why they must continue to show patience with the rookie as he fired a wild pitch, allowing the lead run to score.

"Junis gave us a heck of a start", Yost said. Dallas Keuchel (1-5) allowed three runs and six hits with five strikeouts in seven innings.
