Betts is slashing.365/.451/.823 with 11 home runs, 21 RBIs and 32 runs scored, while Martinez is hitting.343/.392/.593 with six homers, 24 RBIs and 18 runs scored.

Encarnacion's big day included a congratulatory phone call from another Dominican slugger.

Encarnacion tops the Indians with nine home runs after slamming three more in a 12-4 rout of the Rangers. He's just 25 years old. "He called me nearly every day and we'd talk about hitting". Boston starter Drew Pomeranz was charged with three runs on eight hits and two BB over six innings of work. The designated hitter leads the team with nine homers despite a.191 batting average. It was his second three-homer game in 2018 and fourth of his career, moving past Hall of Famer Ted Williams for the team record.

And while their NY rivals have had an MVP candidate of their own in shortstop Didi Gregorius, Red Sox Nation now have a champion of their own to contend for the award given to the best overall player in the American League. "Think I'm just keeping that same, aggressive "drive the ball" mindset throughout the whole at-bat". "Just to know my name is amongst his is pretty cool".

Martinez hit 45 homers last but has been a tad behind that pace early this season. Walden entered the game with one out in the fifth and runners on the corners, and he recorded two outs without letting either of the runners score.

Chicago has dropped four straight and 13 of 17. Red Sox games have gone over 16 times, gone under 12 times and pushed on one occasion.

Price and the first-place Red Sox took it on the chin from the last-place Rangers and Minor, who matched his season-high of six innings while earning the win to improve to 3-1. He proceeded to take his time in a slow, methodical home run trot. "He wanted to enjoy it".

Pujols hit his 620th career homer, connecting off Dylan Bundy (1-4).

"Still working on trying to run and seeing if I can get that squared away", said Murphy, who spoke with reporters for the first time since returning from extended spring training on Monday. Murphy says he's not running the way he would if at 100 percent, adding that it's frustrating to be unable to play while his teammates compete so hard each night. To not be able to do that with them is frustrating. Sewald (0-2) gave up three runs in three innings, and Robert Gsellman gave up back-to-back homers to Johan Camargo and Ryan Flaherty during a four-run eighth.

Meanwhile, third baseman Anthony Rendon will begin a rehab assignment Thursday at Class A Potomac. "Beltre, he is progressing", manager Jeff Banister said.
