Betts went 2-for-5 with a double and a stolen base in a 5-3 win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. When Betts swiped third base in the eighth inning, it gave him 10 thefts on the campaign, extending his streak of seasons with double-digit steals to seven. Betts is running slightly less in 2021 than in years past, but he still ranks among only 14 National Leaguers with at least 20 homers and 10 thefts this season.
Betts went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and RBI and a HBP in Sunday's 8-0 win against San Diego. Betts homered in the fifth inning to extend Los Angeles' lead to 2-0, singled and scored in the seventh and was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the eighth. The 28-year-old was a key contributor to a weekend sweep of San Diego with consecutive multi-hit games that each included a homer.
Betts went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, an additional RBI and a caught stealing in a 5-4 triumph over San Diego on Saturday. Betts singled and was caught stealing second in the first inning, hit an RBI sacrifice fly in the third, and connected on a three-run homer off San Diego starter Chris Paddack in the fifth. The 2018 AL MVP was responsible for half of Los Angeles' hits on the evening and tied his season high with four RBI. He's compiled an impressive 6-for-13 stretch at the dish over his last four games.

Betts went 1-for-4 with a run, walk and two stolen bases in a 6-1 win over the Giants on Saturday. Betts did all of his damage early Saturday, walking, stealing second and third and scoring in the first inning and singling in the third. The single broke a two-game hitless stretch for the former MVP, while it was encouraging to see Betts active on the bases as the steals were his first since June 25.
