There hasn’t been much to celebrate this year for the Boston Red Sox, but last night there was. Rafael Devers went 6 for 6 including 4 doubles, becoming the first player in the MLB modern era to do so.
Devers wasn’t the only player to have a historic night, however, as pitcher Chris Sale reached 2,000 strikeouts for his career. He reached the milestone in just 1,626 innings, which is the fastest of all time.
The Sox held off a hard-charging Cleveland Indians comeback bid to win in extra innings, 7-6. Jackie Bradley Jr hit the go-ahead home run in the top of the 10th inning, and Andrew Casher pitched a shut-down bottom half to secure the victory.
