WATCH: Mookie Betts robs homer before hitting one of his own
Red Sox youngster Mookie Betts packed one game of ridiculous plays into two innings Monday.
If this is how it's going to be, we'll see a wave of kids named Mookie in New England.
In the bottom of the first, Betts would steal two bases on the same play, thanks to the Nationals being in the shift for David Ortiz:
Ortiz would single to plate Betts and give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead.
Next inning, Betts came up with two on and hit a home run.
So he has cost the Nationals two runs with his glove and pretty much single-handedly accounted for the four Red Sox runs. All this in the first two innings.
Have a day, kid.
