Betts makes history with three HRs, Darvish dominates

Mookie Betts made history in an incredible performance for the Los Angeles Dodgers, while Yu Darvish starred again in MLB.

Betts crushed three home runs as the Dodgers cruised past the San Diego Padres 11-2 on Thursday.

A star recruit for the Dodgers earlier this year, Betts joined illustrious company with his latest display.

With his sixth career three-homer effort, Betts is alongside Johnny Mize and Sammy Sosa for the most in MLB history.

Darvish struck out 11 and conceded just one hit in seven innings to lead the Chicago Cubs past the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2.

Ian Happ went two-for-three with an RBI as the Cubs improved to 13-3 this season.

Rays hammer Red Sox, Nido delivers

The Tampa Bay Rays completed a dominant four-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox. The 17-8 win saw the Rays blast 42 runs across the series. The Rays are the first visiting team to record a four-game sweep at Fenway Park while scoring eight-plus runs in every game, as per STATS.

Tomas Nido hit two homers, including a grand slam, in the New York Mets' 8-2 success over the Washington Nationals.

David Peterson pitched five innings and gave up just one hit to improve to 3-1 this season, but he reportedly suffered a shoulder injury.

 

Arrieta's struggles continue

Jake Arrieta again battled in the Philadelphia Phillies' 11-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. The pitcher is now 1-2 this season after giving up seven hits and four runs in just 4.2 innings.

 

Marvellous Mookie

Betts was the star of the show with his three homers.
