Tuesday night, Mookie Betts became the 27th player in the long history of the Red Sox to notch three home runs in a single game.
We'll talk to Bill Littlefield about the state of the Sox, and look ahead to the start of the NBA Finals.
- "Including Tuesday, the feat has been achieved 27 times in franchise history, and eight times since 2001. Will Middlebrooks had been the last Red Sox to do it, in April 2013. No Red Sox player has hit four home runs in one game."
- "Sweeping changes have reshaped the Cavaliers that took the court for the 2015 Finals. The coach that led the Cavaliers last year, David Blatt, was fired at midseason and replaced by lead assistant Tyronn Lue. Cleveland’s roster will feature Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love — two players that missed the Finals with respective knee and shoulder injuries last season. This year’s team also includes Channing Frye, whose acquisition via trade has banished center Timofey Mozgov to the end of the bench and improved the Cavaliers’ offensive efficiency. The most obvious difference for the Warriors is evidenced by their championship ring-adorned fingers."
