JD Martinez extended his on-base streak to 31 games by hitting a home run in the first inning, and the Boston Red Sox blew out the Texas Rangers 11-3 on Saturday to win their first series in a month. Rich Hill, 42, pitched into the seventh inning in his return from being listed with COVID-19. Rafael Devers added another homer for Boston, which posted a season-high in runs and has won the first two games of three in the weekend series. Puerto Rican Kiké Hernández drove in three runs, with a sacrifice fly in the second inning, a fielder’s choice in the fourth and a double in the fifth. The Red Sox (13-20) had only won one of their first 10 series. They took two of three commitments in Detroit, from April 11 to 13, during the first week of the campaign.
