Alex Cora Offers Update On Mookie Betts' Injury — Red Sox Notes

The warmer temperatures in Texas likely were a major factor, but the weather is starting to warm up even in the northeast, which is a good thing for Sale.

Vegas is listing Boston (-180) as the favorite over Texas (+170).

Sunday's series finale will see left-hander pitcher Chris Sale (2-1, 2.14 ERA) take the mound for the Red Sox to oppose right-hander Doug Fister (1-2, 2.88). The Red Sox have plenty of firepower around the star right fielder. The Red Sox hold a major league-best 25-9 record and a one-game lead over the Yankees. "This is our first time going up to New York, so I wish I was getting the ball in one of those games". They've lost 1.9 units for bettors taking the moneyline and 10.1 units ATS. Their long and formidable lineup has been kick-started by the man at the top of it. Boston has an over/under record of 16-13-1.

Drew Pomeranz spotted the Royals a three-run lead after two messy innings, but Betts gave the Sox life in the fourth, when he got a 1-1 changeup over the plate from Danny Duffy and launched it over the Green Monster to start the inning.

It's only mid-May, but Betts once again appears on track to compete for the American League MVP.

Perhaps no stat puts Betts' blistering start in context than this.

As a unit, Texas' pitchers have given up 5.4 runs per game overall in 2018.

Carlos Perez was added to the Rangers roster a day after the catcher was received on a waiver clam from Atlanta. The bullpen has a 4.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 8.1 K/9. He has 10 home runs over his last 13 games. Mariano Rivera got his 300th save in his 537th game, Joe Nathan in his 335th save opportunity and Francisco Rodriguez at age 31.

Nomar Mazara and Shin-soo Choo have led the Rangers' offense so far. He threw 91 pitches, with only 22 balls while facing 26 batters.

Mike Minor earned his 3rd win of the season. Three relievers allowed Texas only one hit in the final three innings.

The combination of Thornburg and Kelly, along with the multiple-inning capabilities of Hector Velazquez and the precocious early performance from Bobby Poyner, could squeeze out Brian Johnson.

Porcello (5-0) allowed one run and three hits in six innings while winning his seventh straight decision dating to last season. Other players who are mashing are Rafael Devers, J.D. Martinez, who has 40 hits, and shortstop Xander Bogaerts. It was Benintendi's fourth game with multiple extra-base hits this season, putting him halfway to his 2017 total of eight. "He has the presence of mind that Profar kind of looked at second, and he did a good job scoring". The Red Sox went ahead in the top of the ninth when Andrew Benintendi tripled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez. "Every time I'm next to him he's always in my ear, talking about hitting, talking about hitting, and it just seems like to me I can relate to it a lot because he's not satisfied and I love that about him".
