BOSTON (AP) A surprising roster shakeup didn't disrupt the power surge that has the Boston Red Sox back in first place.

Hours after Boston designated Hanley Ramirez for assignment, Mookie Betts and three teammates homered as the Red Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 6-2 on Friday night.

"Offensively, don't get me wrong - we've done an outstanding job - but we feel that we're going to be better," manager Alex Cora said.
