Go Ahead: Try To Cool Off Mookie [VIDEO]
At age 23, Mookie Betts has done something that only Ted Williams has done in a Boston Red Sox uniform since 1913 - hit three home runs in two games during a season.
Betts blasted three bombs and collected eight RBI Sunday afternoon as the Sox beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 16-2. Two of the three homers came off D-Backs ace Zach Greinke.
Betts is now hitting .313 with 26 HR and 84 RBI.
Meanwhile, Rick Porcello cruised through seven innings, allowing one run on three hits, no walks and four strikeouts.
Porcello is 16-3 with an ERA of 3.30.
The Sox (64-52) begin another 11-game roadtrip with a makeup game in Cleveland this afternoon.
