Royals drop rubber match to Red Sox

Boston Red Sox's Brock Holt watches his RBI single during the second inning against the Los Angeles Angels Tuesday

The three homers Betts hit Wednesday afternoon against the Royals made him the first player in Major League Baseball history to have four 3-home run games before turning 26-years-old.

Pomeranz (1-1) allowed three runs in six innings, and Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to record his eighth save just hours after he blew his first save of the season in the Royals' 7-6 win on Tuesday night.

Betts' third homer turned out to be the game-winning hit as Cuthbert made it a one-run game by tucking in a homer inside the Pesky Pole in right field.

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.

Betts collected four hits and recorded the 13th multi-homer game of his career - and third this season. Same way I do if it's [a] 2-0 [count].

"He is by far one of the better young hitters in my opinion in this game, how he continues to grow", Banister said of the 23-year-old slugger.

Mike Minor will make his sixth start of the season, targeting his second straight win. It is down to 4.18 runs over the last 11 games. He is 4-5 with a 5.11 ERA in 14 career starts against Texas. "The problem he's running into is he's starting to fall off before he delivers the pitch". Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the outing - other than the lefty rebounding giving up three runs in the first two innings - was his increased velocity.

It appears that Mookie Betts is fully healthy.

The most impressive thing about Betts' three-homer afternoon? He now has two three-homer games this season, after doing so back on April 17th. All three homers came on very different pitches.

Austin Jackson added two hits and two RBIs, and Derek Holland (1-3) pitched five innings for his first win of the season for San Francisco.

Trevor Story led off the fifth with a long homer to left, and Chris Iannetta chased Darvish one out later with a solo drive that made it 6-1.

Betts' approach differs from previous year, but, according to Red Sox hitting coach Tim Hyers, his approach is the same as everyone else's.

Eddie Rosario homered for the Twins, who won for only the second time in their last 13 games.

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