The Cleveland Indians had no answer for Rafael Devers Tuesday, as the Boston Red Sox third baseman was a perfect six-for-six at the plate with four doubles, becoming the first player in baseball history to put up that stat line in a single game.
Devers' sixth hit and fourth double came in the 10th inning of a 7-6 Red Sox win.
He's the fifth Red Sox player to record six hits in a game, and first since Nomar Garciaparra did it in a 13-inning contest on June 21, 2003. The four doubles tied the single-game major-league record and made Devers the seventh Red Sox to do it.
At 22 years, 293 days old, he is also the youngest player to record a six-hit game since Hall of Famer Joe Morgan did it for the Houston Astros in 1965.
Devers, who also picked up three RBIs, is now hitting .325/.373/.574 this season. He now has 43 doubles, tying him with Nicholas Castellanos for the league lead.
