Betts Eastern League Player Of Month
They just can't keep Mookie Betts off the bases in the Eastern League. The Portland Seadogs second baseman now has reached base safely at least once in 57 consecutive games. The streak dates back to last year when Betts was in Single-A ball.
Last night in an 8-1 win against the Reading Phils, Betts had two hits, two walks, scored three runs and a RBI. Betts leads the league with a .412 average.
His on-base streak extends to 57 games and if you include playoffs games in Single-A last year the streak is 62 games.
Seadogs shortstop Deven Marrero had a home run and knocked in four runs and the Dogs improve to 18-10 in the Eastern League.
