Another day, another home run for Rafael Devers. The Boston Red Sox third baseman slugged his ninth homer of the season during Sunday afternoon's win over the St. Louis Cardinals (BOS 11, STL 3), giving him a home run in five straight games. Five consecutive games with a homer ties the Red Sox franchise record.

Devers went 1 for 3 with the home run and a walk Sunday. Here's the homer:

Six other Red Sox players have gone deep in five straight games: Jimmie Foxx (1940), Ted Williams (1957), Dick Stuart (1963), George Scott (1977), Jose Canseco (1995), and Bobby Dalbec (2020). Devers is the second player to hit a home run in five straight games this season, joining Chicago Cubs first baseman Michael Busch. Busch tied the Cubs' franchise record.

The all-time record is eight consecutive games with a home run by Dale Long (1956), Don Mattingly (1987), and Ken Griffey Jr. (1993). You needn't look back far for the last time a player came close to to matching that record -- Mike Trout went deep in seven straight games in Sept. 2022.

Devers, 27, is now hitting .285/.384/.555 on the season. He dealt with a shoulder issue earlier this year but has quietly been excellent, ranking in the top 10 of the American League in on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and OPS.

Sunday's win snapped Boston's four-game losing streak. They are 23-24 on the season. The Cardinals are in the NL Central cellar at 19-28.
