Mookie Betts Just Saved The Red Sox From Falling To .500 With A Game-Winning 3-Run Bomb In The Ninth

All this talk about who the leader of the Red Sox is now that David Ortiz is gone — it’s this guy. This guy right here. That’s your team leader. His name is Mookie Betts, and he just saved the Red Sox’ asses from getting swept in Milwaukee to fall to .500 on the year.

Hope you’re ready to give some praise to John Farrell, because Betts has been in the leadoff spot for five games and over his last four, he’s 10-for-17 with four doubles and three homers. We’re still watching a Red Sox team that has very much been mediocre this season, but that right there was a big time sign of life. Up until that ninth inning, the Red Sox were playing like a team that very much deserved to be swept. They got bailed out big time today by Mookie, but that’s the guy that you should expect to deliver when the team needs him the most. And he did.

Full reaction to this one coming tomorrow morning.
