Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts made history Wednesday during his team's 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals. The 10-year veteran right-hander has allowed a combined 10 runs in his last two starts, however he still features a 3.78 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP in 33.1 innings pitched on the season.

With the sun shining and the 86-degree game-time temperature flawless for hitting home runs, the Red Sox hit four of them, three by Betts and one by J.D. Martinez, who launched a two-run shot in the fourth inning to tie the game, 3-3.

The Phillies were 6-0 winners at Miami behind Aaron Nola, who scattered four hits over 7 1/3 innings to move to 4-1.

Red Sox hitters have slashed.272/.340/.457 on their way to 5.7 runs scored per game this season, including 4.7 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 6.2 per game over the team's last five outings (3-2 SU).

Luis Severino pitched a five-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts for his first career complete game, Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and drove in four runs, and the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros.

"They kept battling. They kept fighting and kept trying to put together good at-bats", manager Ned Yost said of his club. "That's why I'm so proud of watching these guys". Cleveland's Michael Brantley tied the game in the ninth with a two-out grand slam off Keone Kela, but the Rangers bailed out their closer who entered the game with a 6-2 lead.

The Red Sox won't play a game at Fenway again until May 14 as they take to the road to take on the Rangers, Yankees and Blue Jays in respective series'.

At just 25 years old, he joins Albert Pujols as the only active players with four three homer games.

Later, Vazquez used his mask to gather in a loose ball and was called for a rare catcher's balk.

"I don't need to see Alex hit a home run for me to think that it's still in there", he said. "That was a frightful game". Trevor Story and Chris Ianetta went deep against Yu Darvish, who was rocked for five earned runs and seven hits over 4 1/3 innings. Betts' wheelhouse is the entire zone, and he can hit any pitch.

Salvador Perez is 3-for-5, Alcides Escobar 2-for-4 and Ryan Goins 2-for-5, while Lucas Duda and Abraham Almonte both 0-for-5 against Pomeranz.

Three batters later, Martinez went down to lift another Duffy changeup over the Monster for a two-run shot, his sixth homer of the season.

"You just get to a point where you just kind of swing and there's not much thinking going on", Betts said.
