Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers set a new franchise record by homering in a sixth straight game following a two-run blast in the fourth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday.

Devers entered the contest tied with six other players in Red Sox history, including Hall of Famers Jimmie Foxx and Ted Williams.

The MLB record for homers in consecutive games is eight. Dale Long (1956), Don Mattingly (1987), and Ken Griffey Jr. (1993) are the only players ever to accomplish the feat.

Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout is the last major leaguer to register a round-tripper in seven straight contests, which happened in 2022.

"I'm very proud to be in that conversation with him," Devers said when asked about Trout, who was also the last player to go deep in six straight, according to Mark Didtler of The Associated Press. "Obviously, we know the type of superstar that he is. He's a future Hall of Famer and superstar, and to be able to be in the same level with him is very nice."
