He's the best Betts for the Red Sox — Commentary

Encarnacion, Betts each hit three homers

Red Sox slug past Royals 5-4

A night after throwing a scoreless ninth inning to clinch the 5-1 win over the Rangers on Friday, Bobby Poyner was optioned to Pawtucket to make room for Eduardo Rodriguez, who started last night's game. And the third home run by Mookie Betts proved to be the game-winner.

"Honestly, I'm trying to hit it to center to right-center, it just happens that I keep pulling it", said Betts. Chances are Betts is OK and the Red Sox are just being careful here, but look for an update on his condition later Sunday. May. "Lot of things combined, I gained a little bit more within myself, too".

Now, Donato is a forward and I'm not saying he's the answer to the Bruins Keystone Cops routine in their own zone, but the other problem developing for the Bruins is that they're relying way too much on getting scoring from their number one line of Bergeron, Marchand, and Pastrnak.

Cheslor Cuthbert homered for Kansas City, and Drew Butera had a two-run double.

The Boston defense has allowed eight errors over its last five games, compared to five errors for Texas over its last five.

After the first four batters reached on three singles and a walk in the fourth, he limited the Red Sox to two sacrifice flies before knocking down Hanley Ramirez's sharp comebacker, tracking it down as it rolled toward second, and fired to first baseman Joey Gallo to end the inning.

Considering his struggles against left-handed pitching over the season's first six weeks, Benintendi figured he was due for a slice of luck.

He is showing off his repertoire and is winning against tough opponents, conquering the Toronto Blue Jays twice and now the Boston Red Sox. This should be a pretty good matchup on the mound. Boston outfielder J.D. Martinez has multiple hits in five of the past seven games. "I was running, but I wanted it to last". Texas struck out 52 times in the four-game series.

Boston will send left-hander David Price (2-3, 3.78 ERA) to the mound on Thursday to oppose Rangers left-hander Mike Minor (2-1, 4.33). Rodriguez was placed on the family medical leave list Wednesday.

"Well, that was obviously a great performance", manager Alex Cora said after Betts went 4-for-4 to raise his batting average to.365.

The Royals scored a strange run in the first. He played in 1038 games and collected 4358 at-bats from the top spot in the lineup. Soler was doubled up.

Red Sox: Betts left the game in the second inning because of a bruised right shoulder. He pitched one scoreless inning.

Texas' next series is at home against a lackluster Detroit Tigers team. 10 of his 12 home runs this season have come with the bases empty.

The Rangers are 0-5 in Hamels' last five starts, are 0-5 in his last five home outings and are 1-6 in their last seven starts coming off four days of rest. He has 10 home runs over his last 13 games.
