Colon is 9-11 with a 3.76 ERA in 29 games (27 starts) in his career against the Red Sox.

A recent six-game road trip, however, saw the Rangers go a respectable 3-3-despite getting destroyed 12-4 by Cleveland on Wednesday. The right-hander most recently faced Toronto last Saturday, when he worked 7.0 innings and gave up three runs on six hits (two homers) and no walks while picking up the win in a 7-4 victory for the Rangers.

- He's the first Red Sox player with four three-homer games (Ted Williams had three). That nearly forced the hand of manager Jeff Banister, who left Moore on the mound to eat up some innings even as the Rangers never mounted a serious threat to come back in the game.

David Price struggled mightily Thursday, giving up nine runs - seven earned - over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers.

Mookie Betts and Edwin Encarnacion are the latest major leaguers to homer three times in a game this season. Porcello is once again in the kind of form that carried him to the American League Cy Young Award in 2016, when he compiled a 22-4 record and a 3.15 ERA in his second season with the Red Sox.

His third homer, a towering shot to center field off Duffy, turned out to be the game-winning run.

Despite the lousy weather in April that has home runs across the league down compared to 2017, the Sox now are on pace for 205 dingers after hitting just 168 last season. He struck out five and walked one. One came at 1-1, and the others were 0-2 and 1-2. J.D. Martinez singles to left field.

Sean Newcomb tossed two-hit ball over a career-high seven innings and the Braves slammed three home runs off Mets relievers in a 7-0 romp in NY. Texas are 6-20 in their last 26 home games and are 11-24 in their last 35 games on grass.

Pomeranz showed slightly better velocity than he did in his last time out, touching 91-92 miles per hour while allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks.

Over the course of his four-year career, a slash of.295/.356/.502 was compiled due to his ability to get on base while also hitting for power and for contact. The left-hander struck out a season-high nine while permitting two runs and three hits.

Mets ace Jacob deGrom had to leave Wednesday's start after four shutout innings because of a hyperextended pitching elbow.

Rangers 8, Indians 6: Joey Gallo and Isiah Kiner-Falefa homered on consecutive pitches off Nick Goody in the 12th inning for visiting Texas. Betts is hitting an absurd.480 this season when he is down in the count, nearly.300 points higher than the major league average.
