The Red Sox slugger crushed a 443 foot homer to left-center field against Royals starter Danny Duffy on an 85.8 miles per hour changeup.
The Red Sox attack consisted of ten hits and a walk with JD Martinez going 2-4 with a homer and a pair of RBI's while Mookie Betts went 4-4 with a homer and three runs driven in and three scored. Albert Pujols, Carlos Delgado, Willie Stargell, Aramis Ramirez, Larry Parrish, Ralph Kiner, Barry Bonds, Steve Finley and Ernie Banks are the others with four three-home run games during their careers.
The Texas Rangers left Cleveland licking their wounds following a 12-4 defeat on Wednesday afternoon.
Despite the lousy weather in April that has home runs across the league down from 2017, the Sox are on pace for 205 after they hit just 168 a year ago.
Betts final homer went a paltry 440 feet, the second farthest he's ever hit.
Bartolo Colon (1-0, 2.87 ERA) will oppose Porcello on Friday. Duffy is 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in six games lifetime against the Red Sox, but is 0-3 with a 7.97 ERA in four games at Fenway. Betts broke into the majors with the Red Sox in 2014, so he was well aware of the significance of the connection to the Hall of Famer.
His first homer, in the fourth inning, accounted for the Red Sox' first run; they trailed 3-1 after the blast.
The Royals must have wondered what they had to do to get Betts out. The 25-year-old will once again be available off the bench Tuesday. The Red Sox are 39-19 in their last 58 overall, 19-7 in their last 26 on the road, 49-20 in their last 69 against right-handed starters, 24-8 in their last 32 on the road against right-handed starters, 38-13 in their last 51 against opponents with winning percentages under.400, and 6-1 in the last seven meetings between the two teams.
J.D. Martinez also homered and Drew Pomeranz allowed three runs over six innings as the Red Sox improved to an American League-leading 22-8.
Moving Mookie Betts out of the leadoff spot seems to make more and more sense everyday, especially after Wednesday's 4-for-4, three-home run performance that brought his season total to 11. Expect those trends to continue.
The Phillies were 6-0 winners at Miami behind Aaron Nola, who scattered four hits over 7 1/3 innings to move to 4-1. He may not have to be ideal on Friday, because Betts and the rest of the Boston lineup are doing serious damage.
Among the many things that have gone right for Boston this season, the Red Sox defense has been near the top of the list.
