BOSTON – Mookie Betts made some Red Sox history as the Sox dismantled the Orioles 19-3 in the first game of the day-night doubleheader Wednesday
Betts became only the second player in franchise history to amass 30 home runs and 30 steals in a season with a second inning steal.
Jacoby Ellsbury is the only other player to go 30-30 in a Red Sox uniform. He hit 32 home runs and stole 39 bases as part of his MVP runner-up campaign in 2011.
J.D. Martinez homered, his 42nd of the season. That ties the mark set by Dick Stuart in 1963 for most home runs hit by a player in his first year with the Red Sox.
Xander Bogaerts hit his 22nd home run of the season, setting a new career-high for the shortstop. Bogaerts drove in four runs, hitting the 100-RBI mark for the first time in his career.
Rafael Devers homered twice as part of a six-RBI day. He now has 20 home runs in 2018.
Blake Swihart also went deep, his third of the year.
The Red Sox clobbered 22 hits in the win.
David Price gave up three runs over five innings of six-hit ball. The lefty gave up two home runs, one to Trey Mancini and the other to Renato Nunez.
Chris Sale (12-4, 2.00 ERA) will take the ball for his final regular season start in the second game of the doubleheader at 7:10.
