Dodgers Highlights: Freddie Freeman Breaks Doubles Record; James Outman & Mookie Betts Home Runs Against Red Sox

The Los Angeles Dodgers closed out their road trip by defeating the Boston Red Sox, 7-4, to take four of six away from Dodger Stadium and win an eighth consecutive series.

James Outman provided the Dodgers with their initial lead on his solo home run in the fourth inning. Outman also hit an RBI single in the seventh. Prior to that point, Max Muncy added an RBI base hit in the fifth that extended their advantage to 2-0.

Mookie Betts then continued to put his stamp on reunion weekend at Fenway Park with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. Betts later hit an RBI single to create more separation in the eighth inning.

Betts finished 7-for-15 with two doubles, one home run, five runs and four RBI in three games against his former team. Red Sox fans treated Betts to a standing ovation for his first at-bat each game.

Sandwiched between Betts’ big hits was Freddie Freeman breaking the L.A. Dodgers franchise record for most doubles in a season with 50. The record previously belonged to Shawn Green, who hit 49 doubles during the 2003 season.

Johnny Frederick holds the all-time Dodgers record with 53 doubles in 1929. Freeman is on pace to hit 63 doubles this season.

Dodgers pitching

Caleb Ferguson started as an opener for the fourth time this season and got through a scoreless inning. He was followed by Gavin Stone, who allowed four runs over six-plus innings.

Stone had only allowed a two-run homer that was more of a fly ball to Triston Casas, but remaining in the game to start the bottom of the eighth saw Justin Turner and Adam Duvall go back-to-back.

Ryan Brasier entered at that point to retire all three batters faced and Evan Phillips converted his 21st save of the season.
