Encarnacion, Betts each hit three homers

Boston Red Sox's Brock Holt watches his RBI single during the second inning against the Los Angeles Angels Tuesday

Mazara had a two-run double off Price (2-4) in the third and an inning later hit a towering three-run homer as the first batter after the Red Sox lefty was pulled from the game.

In his second game back from a brief absence caused by a hamstring injury and first game back in the starting lineup, Betts homered in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings off Royals starter Danny Duffy (0-4).

The Royals took a 1-0 lead on Perez's sacrifice fly in the first but missed a chance for more when center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. threw out Jorge Soler trying to advance to second.

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 hat trick, which came on three consecutive at-bats that propelled Betts into the league lead for home runs with 11 in total. These were career marks for the young slugger, while his 215 hits and 42 doubles, coupled with a measly 80 strikeouts, were a clear sign he was a complete hitter.
