Mookie Betts homered off Will Harris in the top of the eighth to break a tie and propel the Red Sox to a 2-1 win over the Astros on Friday.
Betts scored both Boston runs, with the other coming after a walk. He also threw out George Springer at home to end the sixth inning, so it was a pretty great game all around. The home run was his 12th, so he's getting close to last year's pace (he's on track for 29 right now after finishing with 31 last year). Jun 17 - 1:17 AM

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.

Mookie Betts went 4-for-5 with two homers, a double and four runs scored to lead the Red Sox past the Phillies 7-3 on Wednesday.

Betts busted out for a spell in May, but he had been pretty quiet the last four weeks, with his OPS dropping from .905 on May 16 to .818 coming into this one. The multihomer game was his first of the year. He's going to have to pick up the pace offensively to factor into the MVP race again this year, but as valuable as he is defensively, he doesn't need a 1.000 OPS to be one of the AL's best players.

Mookie Betts finished 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's game against the Tigers.

Betts really struggled to wrap up May and kick off June, but he is starting to show some life at the plate again. He has a pair of multi-hit games over the past three outings while drawing five walks. It isn't huge production, but it's certainly a step in the right direction after going hitless in seven of his 13 games from May 26-June 8.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said he wouldn't consider starting Mookie Betts at second base.

The question came up because Dustin Pedroia is out with a wrist injury, though he's expected to be back after a minimum DL stint. Betts came up through the minors as a second baseman and spent some time there as a rookie in 2014, but that was ages ago. Mookie is a full-time outfielder now, and a pretty good one at that. Josh Rutledge has been filling in at second base for the Red Sox.

Mookie Betts doubled and smacked a solo homer on Monday against the White Sox.

He led off the game with a two-bagger off of starter David Holmberg and then greeted reliever Gregory Infante with a home run that hit off the top of the left field wall and went over. The big game was nice to see, as Betts had been on a skid of late with just one hit over his last 15 at-bats.
May 29 - 6:07 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk versus the Rangers on Wednesday.

Betts has 17 RBI in 16 games as a leadoff man after driving in 13 runs in 26 games while batting third.
May 24 - 10:42 PM

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.
