Red Sox use four home runs edge Royals 5-4

Diamondbacks 4, Dodgers 3: Daniel Descalso hit a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh inning as host Arizona dealt Los Angeles its seventh loss eight games. He did a whole bunch of other things I haven't done.

The St. Louis right-hander took his time as he circled the bases after hitting his first major league home run in the Cardinals' 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. "When he gets going like that, that's pretty cool". Kansas City first baseman Cheslor Cuthbert went yard in the top of the eighth frame, cutting into the Boston lead. Betts isn't just trying to protect the plate, he's is still looking to do damage.

With the sun shining and the 86-degree game-time temperature ideal 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.

Betts stepped up again in the next inning, sending an 86.8-mph Duffy slider out of the park for his second homer of the day. The designated hitter leads the team with nine homers despite a.191 batting average. Overall, the team's lost 13.6 units for moneyline gamblers in this young season and 12.3 units ATS.

It was Kimbrel's first blown save of the season, as he came into the game converting 7-out-of-7 chances so far this season. He has now replicated the effort for his second three-homer game of the season. The reigning AL Cy Young Award victor struck out six and walked none. Their pitching has been bad, placing last in the Major Leagues with a 5.33 ERA.

Martinez is slashing.340/.390/.594/.984 with six homers, seven doubles, one triple and 24 RBIs in 28 games. Whit Merrifield is 1 for 5 against Pomeranz, while Mike Moustakas is 0 for 3, and Salvador Perez is 3 for 5. McCarthy didn't allow a hit and struck out two. The southpaw Duffy is 0-3 with a 5.40 ERA and 28 strikeouts.

Alex Gordon and Whit Merrifield delivered one-out singles, and Soler jumped on a 1-0 curveball from Brian Johnson and lifted it just over the Green Monster.

Warwick Saupold (1-0) got three outs for the win, striking out two. It was the third time in his career he had a tying homer in the ninth.

Michael Fulmer pitched six innings of two-run ball for the Tigers.

The Red Sox offense has been led by Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez.

Chicago has dropped four straight and 13 of 17. The Red Sox have 38 homers in 30 games.

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.

Rangers 8, Indians 6: Joey Gallo and Isiah Kiner-Falefa homered on consecutive pitches off Nick Goody in the 12th inning for visiting Texas. Last year, it took the Sox 31 games to reach 26 home runs.
