Red Sox Mookie Betts wins AL Player of the Week

Betts’ torrid stretch earns AL Player of Week

Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts earned his second American League Player of the Week honor on Monday after a stellar seven days that saw him amass three home runs and a Major League-best 11 RBIs over that span. He also posted a .375/.483/.917 slash line in six games against the Brewers and Rays.

 

The Brewers shouldered the brunt of Betts’ bat; during a three-game series, Betts went 7-for-11 against Milwaukee hurlers with five runs scored, three doubles, two home runs, four walks and eight RBIs. His ninth-inning dinger off Brewers closerNeftali Feliz clinched Thursday’s game for the Sox.

All-time winners: AL Player of the Week

 

Betts, 24, bounced back from an 0-for-5 outing at the plate Friday, galvanizing Boston’s offense on Saturday with a two-run homer and an RBI double.

“[Betts is] now three or four weeks into a really good run, where the impact of the baseball has been there,” Red Sox skipper John Farrell said Saturday. “He’s giving us a spark in that leadoff spot, that’s for sure.”

 

Betts is hitting .296/.375/.526 this season, leading Red Sox hitters with six home runs and 25 RBIs. His 13 doubles are second in the AL, trailing only to teammate Mitch Moreland‘s 15.
