Video: Mookie Betts crushes his first big league home run

With the Sox trailing 8-3 in the bottom of the fifth, Mookie Betts stepped up and crushed his first big league home run over the Monster in left.

Hopefully this will be the first of many for the young rookie, who continues to adjust to his new home in the Fenway outfield.

Unfortunately for the Sox, that wasn’t even close to the end of the scoring, as they fell to the Cubs again, 16-9.

The Sox now sit 8.5 back of Toronto and only 1.0 game ahead of the streaking last-place Rays in the East.
