Mookie Betts drove in a pair of runs Saturday in the Red Sox’s 10-5 win over the Yankees.

Betts got Boston on the board in the third inning by drilling in a two-run single down the left field line. He scored later in the frame on a three-run jack courtesy of Andrew Benintendi. Betts added a double and scored on another three-run homer by Benintendi in the fifth. It’s been a down year for Mookie compared to his MVP runner-up finish in 2016, but the 24-year-old is still quietly on pace for 25 homers, 100 RBI and 20-plus steals. That still gives fantasy owners plenty to work with.

The eight RBI tie a major league record for most in a game from the leadoff spot in the lineup. He's now slashing .283/.362/.506 with 15 homers and 51 RBI on the season.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Red Sox explored a long-term deal with Mookie Betts this past winter.

But talks apparently didn't get too far and Heyman writes Thursday that the 24-year-old outfielder has "decided he’s comfortable going year to year" for now. Betts is making just $950,000 this season despite finishing second in the 2016 American League MVP voting. He has a big payday coming in the offseason as a first-time arbitration guy. Betts is scheduled to reach free agency after the 2020 campaign.
