BOSTON - Mookie Betts' timing couldn't have been any better on Tuesday night.
The rookie center fielder blasted a pair of solo home runs and made a key defensive play to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park.
"His timing at the plate is pretty consistent," Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
"Just one heck of an athlete. We're seeing some pretty special things in a short glimpse here."
