Rafael Devers sure knows how to atone for a mistake.
The Boston Red Sox third baseman helped turn a wild double play Monday at Fenway Park in their series finale against the Texas Rangers.
The mind-boggling play started with Yonny Hernandez hitting into a fielder’s choice, and pitcher Nathan Eovaldi tossing to catcher Kevin Plawecki, snagging Nick Solak in a run-down. Plawecki threw to Devers, who tagged out Solak. Devers then darted to the first-base line, cutting off Hernandez’s return. Devers then threw to left fielder Kyle Schwarber, who tagged out Hernandez.

The Rangers scored earlier in the inning when Devers made a fielding error on Solak’s grounder to third. Two batters and one Bobby Dablec error later, Jason Martin put Texas on the scoreboard.
However, Devers’ heads-up hustle play prevented the Rangers from fully erasing a 2-1 deficit.
