Devers Breaks Franchise Record with Sixth Consecutive Game with a Homer

In a commanding series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, Rafael Devers etched his name into the annals of Boston Red Sox history, setting a new franchise record for consecutive games with a home run.


The pivotal moment came in the fourth inning when the dynamic third baseman launched an opposite-field blast off a 97-mph four-seam fastball from Taj Bradley (1-2), propelling the Red Sox to a 5-0 victory. Devers’ two-run shot to left not only contributed to Boston’s lead but also marked his sixth consecutive game going deep, surpassing the previous record held by Bobby Dalbec in 2020.


On the mound, Boston’s Tanner Houck (4-5) delivered a masterful performance, utilizing 94 pitches over seven innings to stifle the Rays’ offense. The right-hander conceded just two hits while striking out five and issuing one walk, albeit via a defensive alignment violation.


Despite a commendable effort from Tampa Bay’s Bradley, who notched a season-high 10 strikeouts without surrendering a walk, he ultimately yielded five runs on six hits over seven innings.
