Betts Leads Sox In 14-1 Rout Of Yanks

With the Red Sox getting off to such an impressive start, there's plenty of credit to go around.

The series with the Yankees continues Wednesday night at 7:10 with David Price starting for the Red Sox and Masahiro Tanaka for NY. Through 10 games, the team sits alone atop the AL East and shares the best record (9-1) in the league with the New York Mets. The 116.3-mph blast was the hardest home run ever hit off the Red Sox ace.

It's been a while since the team last committed an error. Boston's longest streak of errorless games at any point during the season is 18, which came during September 2016. Pomeranz wants one more start to "tune in his mechanics", Cora said, and will make it at Double-A Portland on Friday. "But we're making the routine plays".

Betts has been Boston's all-around best player the last three seasons, including in 2016 when he finished second in the American League MVP voting. Only three major league third basemen (all of which played 129-plus games) registered more errors previous year. The Red Sox haven't lost since opening day.

Marco Hernandez (left shoulder surgery) was in the clubhouse before the game but his progress is slower than expected, according to Cora.

The shortstop initially needed a walking boot, but was able to get around without one Tuesday.

"He's pitching all the pitches on the paint and he's healthy", Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez said.


"It depends on how my body recovers from it or responds to it", he said.

Cardinals 5, Brewers 3 (11 innings): Matt Carpenter cracked a two-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning as St. Louis outlasted visiting Milwaukee. Through 10 games, Betts is batting.432, which leads all of baseball, with five doubles, two home runs, six RBIs, 13 runs scored, an on-base percentage of.533, a slugging percentage of.730 and just three strikeouts. It took him 20 games last season to reach that same mark. He only has one homer and two stolen bases so far, but Ramirez is still providing major providing offensive contributions. He did sort-of solve Sale with his sixth-inning single and ended up 2-for-4 on the night. Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts will not be the massive sluggers like Stanton or Judge, but they are hitters that will get on base and contribute to run scoring.

He even caught the attention of rapper Lil Wayne.

The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry headlines Wednesday's slate of matches and Ben Steele offers up his best bets for tonight's action.

In his pregame press conference on Tuesday afternoon, Cora admitted that he made a mistake in not taking J.D. Martinez out of left field in favor of a defensive replacement in the top of the ninth on Sunday immediately after the Red Sox' stunning comeback versus the Rays.

While Cora didn't volunteer his mistake, he was quick to own up to it. "I need to maybe go to the bullpen or see video, and see what's going on". "We scored six runs and we were so excited about it, and the manager missed that one".
