Mookie Betts breaks 61-year-old Red Sox record held by Ted Williams with big day at plate
Mookie Betts has ascended to rarified air. The Red Sox slugger, making his return to the starting lineup Wednesday after tweaking his hamstring last week, launched three home runs in a 5-4 win over the Kansas City Royals. It was the second time the outfielder has hit three home runs in a game this season and the fourth time he’s done it since his 2014 MLB debut. On the season, Betts is now hitting .365 with 21 RBI and an MLB-leading 11 home runs to go with a 1.7 WAR through 25 games.
