BOSTON (AP) Hanley Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox has hit three home runs in the first six innings against the San Francisco Giants.

Ramirez hit a two-run shot in the second inning Wednesday night at Fenway Park and another in the third off Giants starter Matt Cain.

In the fourth, Ramirez was hit by a pitch, prompting him to glower at reliever Albert Suarez before the home plate umpire warned both benches.

Ramirez came up with a man on again in the sixth against Suarez and hit a line drive that smacked off a shelf above the Green Monster. Ramirez began the game with eight home runs this season.

Ramirez also made a few plays in the field at first base, including one with the bases loaded in the top of the sixth to step on the bag and throw home for a double play that protected Boston's one-run lead.
