Mookie Betts blasts three homers in Red Sox' win

An early lead against the best team in baseball went for naught, as the Royals lost 10-6 to the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.

Betts missed three days with a tight hamstring and promptly returned with a three-homer game against the Kansas City Royals - his second three-homer game of the young season.

Encarnacion drove in six runs, helping Corey Kluber and the Indians beat the Texas Rangers 12-4 on Wednesday. The Braves began the game with four consecutive hits off Noah Syndergaard to build a three-run cushion.

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. But Eduardo Nunez homered against Kelvin Herrera (1-0) in the bottom half.

They highly appreciated Bangladesh for its generosity saying Bangladesh opened its door and heart for the Rohingyas. On Friday, Human Rights Watch called for the Rohingya crisis to be referred to the International Criminal Court.

Price allowed five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings during his most recent start on April 28 versus Tampa Bay. The 29-year-old most recently faced the Rays for a third time in 2018 this past Sunday, when he went 7.2 innings and surrendered three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out six batters in a 4-3 victory for Boston. But Red Sox manager Alex Cora has zero intentions of moving Betts somewhere else in the order. He teed off against Royals starter Danny Duffy, going deep in the fourth, fifth, and seventh innings of the Red Sox 5-4 victory. It's a much larger sample size of him leading off (353 games), however, than the other two spots (87 games combined).

Boston's bullpen would end up giving back a run in the eighth, leaving little margin for error.

The Royals must have wondered what they had to do to get Betts out. Betts leads the club with 11 homers. Expect those trends to continue. He may not have to be flawless on Friday, because Betts and the rest of the Boston lineup are doing serious damage.

Kansas City jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning. He has yet to face the Rangers this year and only made one start against them in 2017 (1-0, 0.00 ERA and nine strikeouts across six innings). The memorandum of understanding also gives the Diamondbacks complete control of Chase and stipulates the team will play there for at least five more seasons unless a new facility is ready elsewhere in the Maricopa County.
