Xander Bogaerts got his long-awaited first home run of the 2017 season Thursday, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in a 6-2 win over the Rangers.

Bogaerts got hold of a Nick Martinez offering in the third inning, lining it just over the top of the Green Monster to get him on the board. It's hard to believe he hadn't lucked into one before this, especially after he hit a career-best 21 dingers in 2016. It's a big one, but that's really the only knock against the 24-year-old this year, as he's been a terrific offensive performer by basically any other metric. Bogaerts is hitting .335/.398/.470 with eight steals, 17 RBI and 29 runs scored overall.

Elvis Andrus hit his sixth home run of the year in a loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.

The solo shot was Andrus' only hit in four at-bats, as the Rangers struggled mightily against Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz. The shortstop set a career high with eight homers in 2016, but he's already got six this year roughly one-third of the way through. The steadily consistent 28-year-old also has seven steals and a .270/.313/.427 line in 47 games to date.

Deven Marrero hit a two-run home run, his first of the season, in Thursday's win over the Rangers.

Marrero gave the Red Sox a little insurance with his eighth-inning blast, his first in 17 games this year and just his second as a major leaguer. His first came back in 2015. Marrero isn't known for his offense, batting .178/.229/.289 this year.

Craig Kimbrel accomplished a rare feat Thursday, striking out four batters in an inning of work against the Rangers.

Kimbrel worked through the heart of the Rangers' order, getting Nomar Mazara to strike out swinging -- and then watching as Mazara took first base anyway on a wild pitch -- before fanning Jonathan Lucroy, Rougned Odor and Mike Napoli to end it. As though Kimbrel needed the stat boost, he's now struck out 40 batters in 20 2/3 innings of work on the year. Thursday's outing wasn't a save chance, but the 28-year-old has 12 of those to date, along with a ridiculous 0.87 ERA and 0.39 WHIP on the year.

Nick Martinez allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Perhaps no stat line better encapsulates Nick Martinez: not very good, but not awful, either. His 4.69 ERA through seven starts tells a similar story. At least he's reliable -- in all seven of those starts, he's gone at least five innings but no more than seven. Martinez will carry a 1-3 record into Tuesday's start against the Rays.

Tigers recalled C/1B John Hicks from Triple-A Toledo.

The Tigers needed a backup catcher with James McCann (hand) headed to the disabled list. Hicks and Alex Avila will share catching duties during McCann's absence.

Tigers placed C James McCann on the 10-day disabled list with a left hand laceration.

McCann needed five stitches in his left hand after getting hit by a pitch Thursday against Houston. His roster spot will be absorbed by John Hicks. Alex Avila will see most of the action behind the plate during McCann's absence with Hicks making an appearance here and there. McCann shouldn't miss much longer than the 10 minimum 10 days.

Drew Pomeranz had it all working Thursday, striking out 11 while allowing two runs over six innings in a win over the Rangers.

It was a good sign for Sox fans when the southpaw struck out the first two batters he faced and ended up punching out five of the first seven hitters he saw. He allowed just four hits, including a solo homer to Elvis Andrus, and walked one over his six innings. Efficiency has been his enemy this season -- only three times in nine starts has he gotten through six innings, and he's yet to record an out in the seventh -- but the Sox will take Thursday's performance every time. Pomeranz will try to carry on that good momentum, and continue to work on his 4.70 ERA, against the White Sox on Tuesday.
