Rafael Devers' performance on Tuesday night vs. the Indians was a historic one.
Cleveland simply had no answer for the Red Sox slugger, who went 6-for-6 with four doubles and three RBI in Boston's 7-6 win. Making Devers' night even more impressive is it's the first time a player has notched six hits and four doubles in a game during the live-ball era (since 1920).
The 22-year-old is the seventh Red Sox player ever, and first since Brock Holt (2014), to have a four-double game. Only four other Sox have tallied six hits in a game: Jimmy Piersall (1953), Pete Runnels (1960), Jerry Remy (1981), and Nomar Garciaparra (2003).
This isn't the first time Devers has done something historic this season. Last week, he became the first Sox player age 22 or younger to hit at least 23 home runs in a season since 1966. In July, he became the youngest since the legendary Ted Williams to rack up 30 RBI in a single month.
It's scary to think about where the Red Sox would be without Devers this year. The third-year pro is enjoying by far his best season yet, and looks to be a staple in Boston's lineup for many years to come.
