Rafael Devers is absolute flames right now, and no fire extinguisher is going to change that. Devers, as of this writing, is 8-for-8 in his last two games, including 6-for-6 on Tuesday night. Early on Wednesday, he provided a solo home run to increase that streak.

Devers is finally living up to his potential in a year the Red Sox are doing the exact opposite as a team. Still, Boston fans can take solace in the fact that their young slugger is under contract until 2023 (with a few arbitration years in between).
Xander Boegarts would increase the damage, hitting a solo shot of his own to go back-to-back with Devers.
