Rafael Devers joined an exclusive club Wednesday night, becoming just the sixth slugger age 22 or younger to hit a home run in three straight games for the Red Sox. The rest of the list looks like this: Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Carl Yastrzemski, Rico Petrocelli, and Jim Tabor.
In the Red Sox' four-game series in Toronto, Devers homered in the ninth inning, piling on to a 12-2 win. In Tuesday's 10-3 loss, he was one of the few guys connecting, but his solo shot in the eighth was too little too late. Wednesday night, his eighth-inning homer off Derek Law provided some cushion in the back-and-forth affair that the Red Sox ultimately won in 13 innings on Michael Chavis' go-ahead homer.
Devers’ hot streak brings him up to six homers and a .315 batting average on the season.
