Mookie Betts hat trick: three circuits banged against James Paxton

BOSTON - For the second day in a row, Mookie Betts and the Boston Red Sox have taken advantage of the mistakes of New York Yankees starters.

Betts hit three home runs against James Paxton in the first four innings and the Red Sox once again beat the Yankees easily, this time by a 10-5 mark on Friday night.

Betts slammed a long ball in Paxton's eighth pitch in a first-round three-point Red Sox, which saw Martinez hit a two-run homer a few moments later.

Betts had a shot of four in the third inning and another two in the fourth, scoring 7-0. The right-fielder of the Red Sox added a one-point double in sixth at David Hale's expense. It was his fifth match of three long career bullets.

"I think it's time to move to another level," said Betts. It's getting late in the season and we have to start sticking to wins. That's what we do. "

Batteurs des Majeures have managed a three-circuit match for a fourth day in a row, a first in the history of the circuit. Robinson Canó of the New York Mets, Paul DeJong of the St. Louis Cardinals, and Nelson Cruz of the Minnesota Twins predated Betts.

"It's crazy to see him once," said Betts. I imagine that seeing him four days in a row shows that there are several good hitters and they show it. "

Andrew Cashner (10-5), who had suffered two setbacks in his first two starts with the Red Sox, allowed three runs and 10 hits in six innings and two-thirds.

Martinez produced three points for the Red Sox, who won the first of four in the 19-3 series. The 14 hits of the Bostonnais give them 37 during the first two clashes of the weekend against their eternal rivals.

"I do not know if we are sending a message or anything," said Red Sox manager Alex Cora. We know we are good and we are very talented. "

Paxton (5-6) became only the fourth pitcher in Major League Baseball history to give the first batter a run for his third consecutive start, according to STATS. Brad Radke (2004), Brandon Backe (2008) and Yovani Gallardo (2017) first achieved this unenviable feat.

"I think I shot the ball well, but they did not miss when I made a mistake," said Paxton. They got off to a good start. "

Paxton has an average of 11.00 in the first heat this season, allowing 10 homers in 18 starts. Friday against the Red Sox, he conceded seven points and nine hits in four innings of work.

The Yankees have allocated 64 points in their last six outings, the highest total in their history in six games. The starters awarded 47 points, including 43 earned, during this sequence, giving 47 hits, including 16 long balls, in 21 innings and two-thirds.

The New York formation became the first since 1920 to see their starters concede six or more points in four innings or fewer in six consecutive games. Still according to STATS.

"Obviously, it has been a difficult week for us. All we can do is try to tighten things up and fix some mistakes, "said Yankees manager Aaron Boone.
