Last night in Baltimore the Boston Red Sox beat the Orioles, 6-2, behind outfielder Mookie Betts, who smacked three home runs for the BoSox.
Those three dingers gets Mookie the Baseball Card of the Day, my 2016 Topps Series One #84.
⚾Leading off last night, Mookie went 3/5, with those 3 HRs, with 3 runs scored and 5 runs batted in.
Mookie is hitting .285 on the season, and has become the sparkplug for the first place Red Sox offense.
⚾Markus Lynn Betts was born on October 7, 1992, in Louisville, Kentucky.
Mookie was a 5th round selection by the Red Sox in the 2011 Amateur Baseball Draft, and made his big league debut for Boston on June 24, 2014 vs the New York Yankees.
I wanted to use three different Mookie cards in honor of his 3 homer night, but could only find this year's card...I know I have more Betts cards somewhere.
I think I need to take Mookie to get a base hit tonight in Beat the Streak.

PLAY BALL! ⚾
