Watch Red Sox’s Mookie Betts Sneak Home Run Around Foul Poul Vs. Rays

Every now and then, the nooks and crannies of Fenway Park play to the Boston Red Sox’s advantage.

Mookie Betts was the beneficiary Friday night.

In the bottom of the first inning against the Tampa Bay Rays, Mookie Betts flared a liner off Rays starter Chris Archer that looked like nothing more than a foul ball. But luckily for the Red Sox, the ball snuck right around Pesky’s Pole, rewarding Betts and Boston with a three-run home run.

The long ball was Betts’ 19th of the season and definitely one of the shortest traveled.
