By Michael Chavis’ standards, it’s been a while since the 23-year-old had an extra-base hit. Of course, his last one was a home run — his 10th of the season — which came in Boston’s 6-5 win against Toronto on May 22. Chavis has another chance to go yard in Wednesday’s game against the Indians,...

So much for Mookie Betts at second base, but the player J.D. Martinez will replace in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the World Series is mildly surprising -- Andrew Benintendi. Jackie Bradley Jr. had been assumed to be the player to sit when the action shifted to L.A., but Benintendi will...

Betts had been scheduled to bat leadoff as the Red Sox look to take their third straight from the Braves and improve on baseball's best record of 36-16. Betts is in the midst of a monster...
