Mookie Betts had quite the game Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park.
The Boston Red Sox right fielder went 4-for-5 at the plate, and he also smacked two solo home runs in his team’s 7-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The first of his homers came in the top of the fourth inning at a crucial time in the game. The Phillies had just gotten to within two runs after a huge third inning, and Boston left-handed starter Brian Johnson had to exit with a shoulder issue. But Betts provided some much-needed breathing room with his solo shot.
Betts stepped up to the plate one last time in the top of the ninth, and he only was a triple away from the cycle. But he hit his 11th home run of the season instead.
