Mookie Betts Credits Giving Homeless Man Pizza For His Two Home Runs (Video)

Being a good person pays off.

Outfielder Mookie Betts was instrumental in the Boston Red Sox’s 9-5 win over the New York Yankees on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the seventh inning and a two-run shot in the 11th. And he had a rather interesting theory as to how he did it.

Blake Swihart apparently gave away some pizza before his two-homer night Wednesday, so the catcher instructed Betts to do the same when they found themselves with some extra slices. And although there’s no confirmation, we have a feeling the Red Sox are going to be ordering pizza again Wednesday night.
