In Wednesday's opener against the Orioles, shortstop Xander Bogaerts set career highs in home runs (22) and RBIs (100) to pace a 19-3 blowout.

Right fielder Mookie Betts made some Red Sox history on Wednesday in the opener against the Orioles, and so did shortstop Xander Bogaerts. He stole second in the third inning to become the second member of the Red Sox to join the 30-30 club, joining Jacoby Ellsbury, who turned the trick in 2011...
