  • Boston Red Sox's Mitch Moreland right celebrates his solo home run with Xander Bogaerts during the second inning of a baseball game against the Kansas City Royals in Boston Monday

Mookie Betts is one of the best players in baseball, and he offered further proof of that on Wednesday.

Outfielder Mookie Betts hit three home runs Wednesday to become the only Red Sox player with four career three-homer games.

Red Sox: Cora said lefty Eduardo Rodriguez "most likely" will be back to make his scheduled start Saturday.

Passing The Splendid Splinter in the record books is quite the accomplishment for anyone, but is even more incredible considering Betts is 25 years old and only in his fourth season.

Hit heaven: Pujols notches No. 3000
Entering Friday , Pujols had hits off 966 pitchers, an impressive list that literally runs from A (Arroyo) to Z (Zambrano). Pujols is the second player to collect his 3,000th hit in Seattle after Rafael Palmeiro's double in 2005 at Safeco Field.

Alex Gordon hit a tying home run off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning, and Jorge Soler slugged a three-run homer in the 13th and the Royals beat Boston 7-6 on Tuesday night.

"It's pretty cool", Betts said. "Think I'm just keeping that same, aggressive "drive the ball" mindset throughout the whole at-bat".

The Red Sox finished dead last in the American League in home runs last season, hitting just 168.

At 452 feet, his first home run was his longest measured by MLB's Statcast system.

Trump admits reimbursing lawyer for porn star payoff
Asked if Mr Trump knew about the arrangement, Mr Giuliani said: "He didn't know about the specifics of it, as far as I know". The sexual encounter allegedly took place in 2006, four months after Trump's wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron.

"I felt great", Betts said after the game.

The Royals must have wondered what they had to do to get Betts out. "I don't really care what I'm hitting". He has been scored on 19 times (16 earned runs) over 17 innings during his three-game losing streak.

Two-strike aggression is something that's changed for the right fielder this season.

To keep up with the current superhero craze sweeping the nation in the wake of Avengers: Infinity War, it's like when Thor went from some buff dude wielding a hammer to some buff dude wielding a hammer with the power to control lightning at his will. Betts has always had the potential, we're just now seeing what he's fully capable of. "My at-bats are a little bit different [from last year]". Corey Kluber (5-1) allowed three solo homers in seven innings in his fifth straight win.

Ex-VW CEO Winterkorn Charged by USA in Diesel-Cheating Case
Volkswagen had initially suggested that only lower-level executives knew of the diesel emissions cheating. Department of Justice says Winterkorn has been charged with four counts of violating federal law.

Duffy tied a career high by allowing three homers in a start for the eighth time and second time this season. DeShields rocketed a sharp grounder up the middle that Bogaerts grabbed but couldn't get to first in time, then Rafael Devers couldn't come up with a grounder from Shin-Soo Choo. "He's doing an outstanding job being ready to hit from the get-go and setting the tempo for the team". He pitched well in Oakland despite giving up a late, game-winning homer.
