BOSTON — Maybe he'll call his shot next. It seems that easy for Rafael Devers.
Rafael Devers' preternatural hitting ability at age 20 gave him one record on Saturday night and tied him with The Babe for another.
When Devers ripped a home run to the deepest part of Fenway Park in the seventh inning Saturday night, he became the first player under 21 to homer against the Yankees in three straight games since Babe Ruth did it in 1915, per ESPN.
Incredibly, Devers has eight homers in his first 20 games, which is a record for someone under the age of 21, per Elias. The previous record was seven home runs, set by Ron Swoboda in 1965 and Orlando Cepeda in 1958.
Devers' home run was reviewed and upheld after it hit just to the right of the yellow line extending from the farthest point of the triangle in center field. It came off Yankees' righty Adam Warren and cut the Yankees' lead to 4-3.
