Rafael Devers seems to be doing it all for the Red Sox.
The Boston third baseman mashed his 25th home run of the season Wednesday in his team’s 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians. But it’s what he did Tuesday into Wednesday that was historic.
The 8-for-8 stat line is impressive on its own, but what made it even more impressive is how long it had been since another Boston player had done the same.
According to Elias Sports, the last Red Sox player to amass eight consecutive was hits was Pinky Higgins, who accomplished the feat all the way back on June 21, 1938.
Yes, that’s 81 years.
Devers now its batting .325 on the season with 95 RBIs as he only continues to build his case for the American League MVP.
