Mookie Betts continued his Opening Day dominance Tuesday in the Boston Red Sox’s 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Boston’s 23-year-old right fielder blasted his first home run of the season in the victory and made a terrific play in right field, but it’s not the first time he’s flashed both some leather and offensive prowess to kick off the season.
In 2015, Betts went 2-for-4 with a home run in Boston’s 8-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, and Betts lit up Fenway Park just seven days later in the team’s home opener with a three-run homer, a double steal and a spectacular catch robbing Bryce Harper of a home run in Boston’s 9-4 win.
NESN’s Dave O’Brien and Jerry Remy broke down Betts’ budding superstardom on “Red Sox Gameday Live” before Wednesday’s game against the Tribe. Check it out in the video above.
