Betts collected four hits and recorded the 13th multi-homer game of his career - and third this season. It was Betts' fourth career 3-HR game, setting a new franchise record.

Texas, meanwhile, heads back home after a break-even (3-3) road trip to Toronto, where they won twice, and Cleveland, where they ended the trip with a 12-4 loss to the Indians on Wednesday afternoon.

This isn't a game that really draws much interest from me but the way Price has struggled I'd probably go small on Texas to keep me interested...

The Red Sox are 6-1 in their last seven games against the Rangers and are 39-19 in their last 58 games overall.

The Rangers offense did their damage on eight hits and a walk with Nomar Mazara, Joey Gallo and Juan Centeno each clubbing solo home runs. Cesar Hernandez led off the game with a homer off Jose Urena, who fell to 0-5 and is winless in his last nine starts dating to last season.

When you look at Betts's career splits, his numbers from the leadoff spot look relatively similar to his numbers in the second or cleanup spots in the order: right around a.300 bating average and.350 on-base percentage, with a slight variation in slugging (around.500 at leadoff and cleanup, but down to.430 hitting second).

Amazon , on its own, has committed investments to the tune of United States dollars 5 billion for its operations in India. Earlier this week, Inc42 reported that Flipkart has set aside $400 Mn to buyback shares of minority investors.

Pomeranz showed slightly better velocity than he did in his last time out, touching 91-92 miles per hour while allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks. He's 4-for-4, having singled to center field to lead the game off. James McCann hit solo homer with two out in the seventh.

Nolan Arenado belted two of Colorado's four homers and collected five RBIs as the Colorado Rockies blasted the Cubs, 11-2 in Chicago.

The Giants rolled to a 9-4 romp over the Padres as Nick Hundley homered, doubled and matched a career high with four hits. Rodriguez was placed on the family medical leave list Wednesday. Manager Bruce Bochy (BOH'-chee) later acknowledged that Cueto had been pitching with soreness in his previous two starts. That nearly forced the hand of manager Jeff Banister, who left Moore on the mound to eat up some innings even as the Rangers never mounted a serious threat to come back in the game.

Cueto leads the majors with a 0.84 ERA. Murphy says he's not running the way he would if at 100 percent, adding that it's frustrating to be unable to play while his teammates compete so hard each night.

Martinez (3-1) hit a 407-foot shot off Lucas Giolito (1-4) with two outs in the sixth to break a scoreless tie. Montgomery left Tuesday's start with the injury after the first inning. The bullpen has logged an ERA of 3.69, along with a K-per-9 of 9.77. "He's one of the best hitters in the game and also one of the best all-around players in the game".
