Rookie 3B Rafael Devers collected four hits last night and drove in a run in Boston's 6-2 win over the Indians. The 20-year-old is now hitting a robust .417 in the bigs. On the other end of the age spectrum, 33-year-old Doug Fister turned in his best performance as a Carmine Hoser—going 7.2 innings and giving up just two earned runs. Mookie Betts got the scoring started with a bloop two-run single—then added another RBI on a 2-5 night. And, newcomer Eduardo Núñez continued his torrid hitting—going 3-5 with two RBIs. Núñez is now hitting .471 since coming over from the Giants. All in all, a nice, all-around win.
