Mookie Betts smashed his 10th career leadoff home run in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.
It ties him with Jacoby Ellsbury for the franchise lead in leadoff homers, which is pretty incredible considering Betts is in his fourth year with the Red Sox to Ellsbury's seven and has been in a spot other than leadoff in a third of his starts. Betts has hit five home runs over his last eight games. May 16 - 11:51 PM

Mookie Betts plated three runs Saturday in the Red Sox’s 6-3 win over the Rays.

He launched a two-run homer off Blake Snell in the third inning and later contributed an RBI double in the fifth. Betts started slowly this year but has caught fire over the last six games, batting .462 with four homers and 12 RBI over that span. He’s boosted his average from .267 to .305 during that stretch.
May 13 - 4:18 PM

Mookie Betts hit a three-run homer off Neftali Feliz in the top of the ninth inning Thursday to lead the Red Sox to a 4-1 win over the Brewers.

He also doubled and walked twice in the contest. He ended up 7-for-11 with two homers, three doubles, eight RBI and four walks in the series at Miller Park, and his OPS is all of the way up to .924.
May 11 - 4:58 PM

Mookie Betts went 4-for-4 with four RBI, falling a triple shy of the cycle in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

Betts got things started with a leadoff home run off of Wily Peralta. He could have easily completed the cycle in the eighth had he gotten a better bounce, but the ball kicked out right to the left fielder and Betts had to settle for a two-RBI double. Betts is 7-for-10 over his last two games and has homered in each contest.
May 10 - 12:47 AM

Mookie Betts went 3-for-6 with a double and a home run as the Red Sox crushed the Twins on Sunday afternoon in Minnesota.

He looks awfully comfortable back atop the Red Sox lineup. Betts launched his solo homer off of Ervin Santana in the fourth inning, increasing the Red Sox' lead to 4-0 at the time. It was one of five total home runs that his team would hit in the contest. With the three-hit effort, Betts is now hitting .279/.350/.441 with three homers, 14 RBI and four stolen bases on the season.
May 7 - 6:00 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI, and two walks Sunday as the Red Sox defeated the Orioles 6-2.

Betts opened the game's scoring with a three-run homer in the top of the first inning before adding a single in the top of the seventh. The star outfielder boasts a .313/.389/.469 slash line with two home runs, 11 RBI, three stolen bases, and eight runs scored in 16 games this season for Boston.
Apr 23 - 5:25 PM

Mookie Betts delivered a three-run double in the top of the 10th to propel the Red Sox past the Blue Jays 4-1 on Thursday.

Now that his strikeout streak is over, hopefully Betts will go back for hitting for more power. He fanned twice today after striking out for the first time all season on Wednesday. We wouldn't call that a good sign necessarily, but we'd rather have him up there thinking about hitting the ball hard than thinking about not striking out.
Apr 20 - 4:03 PM

Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with his first home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Betts singled in a run in the third and scored, singled and scored in the fifth and smacked a solo shot off of Joe Smith in the seventh. The reigning American League MVP runner-up got off to a slow start, but his bat has been scorching of late with 12 hits over his last 22 trips to the plate.
Apr 18 - 11:33 PM

Mookie Betts went 4-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Rays.

Betts actually equaled the number of hits he had through his first six games. The 24-year-old was one of many members of the Red Sox who came down with a nasty case of the flu, so it’s silly to look too much into his slow start. Friday should be the start of big things.
Apr 14 - 11:31 PM

Mookie Betts (flu) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

It will be his first start since Opening Day, as Betts was hit hard with a bout of the flu. He's in right field and batting third against Daniel Norris and the Tigers.
Apr 9 - 9:37 AM

Mookie Betts (flu) is expected back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Betts hasn't played since Opening Day and wasn't even at the ballpark for a few days due to a nasty flu bag that's spread across the Red Sox' clubhouse. However, he was with the team Saturday and is expected to be back in there Sunday. Betts' fantasy owners will certainly welcome his return.
Apr 9 - 9:04 AM

Mookie Betts (flu) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

The outfielder was expected to return to the lineup on Friday but is still feeling under the weather. Chris Young will once again start in his place and bat seventh against Jordan Zimmermann and the Tigers on Saturday.
Apr 8 - 10:20 AM

Mookie Betts (flu) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Manager John Farrell on Thursday had Betts tentatively penciled in to play Friday, but evidently the outfielder still isn't feeling well enough. He's not even at Comerica Park, so it looks like a pinch-hitting appearance won't happen. Chris Young is handling right field Friday.
Apr 7 - 9:17 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday that Mookie Betts (flu) is "tentative" to be in the lineup Friday.

Betts didn't play Wednesday due to the flu and Thursday's game was rained out. It sounds like he should be fine for Friday, but check back in later just to be safe. Brock Holt has also been battling the flu but has been cleared to return to action.
Apr 6 - 11:46 AM

Mookie Betts (illness) is not in the Red Sox's lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

Betts and teammate Brock Holt are both battling the flu. Chris Young will handle right field and bat sixth with Betts sidelined. Xander Bogaerts, who hit sixth in Monday's opener, will slide down to the No. 3 spot in Boston's order where he'll face Bucs right-hander Jameson Taillon. Consider Betts day-to-day.
