Devers' 6-game HR streak breaks Red Sox record

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Boston Red Sox star Rafael Devers set a team record when he homered for the sixth consecutive game Monday night at Tampa Bay.

Devers had shared the mark of five with Jimmie Foxx (1940), Ted Williams (1957), Dick Stuart (1963), George Scott (1977), José Canseco (1995) and Bobby Dalbec (2020). He is the first major leaguer to do it since the Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout had a seven-game streak Sept. 4-12, 2022.

"In the moment, I wasn't thinking about that," Devers, through an interpreter, said of the franchise record following the Red Sox's 5-0 win. "When I got to the dugout and I saw my teammates, it was a special moment for sure."

The Chicago Cubs' Michael Busch had a five-game home-run streak earlier this season.

Tampa Bay starter Taj Bradley struck out eight of his first nine batters entering the fourth. Devers was the only Boston batter to put the ball in play over the stretch, hitting a comeback groundout that Bradley deflected to second baseman Brandon Lowe.

After Jarren Duran had a leadoff triple in the fourth and scored on Wilyer Abreu's double, Devers connected on a opposite-field homer to left.

The homer was Devers' 10th of the season and extended his hitting streak to 10 games.

Devers' six-game home run streak also tied the longest by a third baseman over the past 100 seasons, joining Colorado's Nolan Arenado (2015), Houston's Morgan Ensberg (2006) and San Diego's Graig Nettles (1984).
