Mookie Betts sets Boston Red Sox franchise record for leadoff homers

Via Mass Live

Mookie Betts stroked his 11th career leadoff home run in the first inning today, passing Jacoby Ellsbury for the most in Boston Red Sox history.

He bashed an 85.8 mph slider from righty Chris Archer to left-center field to give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

This is Betts’ 308th career start in the leadoff spot in the Red Sox batting order.

Betts, who will start the All-Star Game in Miami this week, has 16 home runs this season and is on pace for 29. He bashed 31 homers last year.
