Something Positive: Mookie Betts Hits Game-Winning Homer for PawSox in Extra Innings

While the Red Sox offense continues to struggle after being swept in Cleveland, there was a little good news down on the farm in Durham, N.C. Wednesday night.

Red hot second base/outfield prospect Mookie Betts, who was recently called up to Triple-A Pawtucket from Portland, hit his first home run — an extra innings game winner — for the PawSox in their 8-7 win over Durham in 11 innings.

Betts had his first three hits for the PawSox in last night’s game, going 3-for-6 with two runs scored in the game. Before belting the game-winning homer, Betts grounded out with the bases loaded in the ninth inning.

The PawSox rallied from a 7-4 deficit in the ninth inning to force extra innings when Ryan Roberts tied the game with a two-out double.
Pitching prospect Alan Webster started the game and went six innings, giving up seven hits and one run.
