Betts’ leads Red Sox into St. Louis with game-opening homer

ST. LOUIS — Mookie Betts didn’t win the American League Player of the Week award without prompting a significant question in Boston: Will another outstanding season from the right fielder be enough?

MVP candidates are going to have MVP candidate weeks, and Betts didn’t stop just because a new week started.

Betts homered to lead off last night’s 6-3 win against St. Louis at Busch Stadium, drove in the game-tying run in the fifth with a groundout and then made a remarkable spin-and-throw to kill a potential Cardinals rally in the same inning.

Red Sox run wild, Eduardo Rodriguez cruises

As I said in the intro to today’s Gamethread, this afternoon’s game in Oakland was as close to a must-win as one can possibly be this early in the season. They’d only lost three consecutive games, but they’ve been sputtering for weeks now and they really needed to pull themselves out of the slump. They’ll still have work to do, of course, and one win cannot clean the bad taste completely out of our mouths, but this was certainly a step in the right direction.

The most encouraging part of this game was certainly the offense. It wasn’t even that they put up a bunch of runs — although, we won’t complain about that — but it was how they did it. We know they’ve been struggling in the power department this year, so the other option to take advantage of everything you can. When the other team makes a mistake, you can’t let that go unpunished. In fact, when you’re playing a team who is prone to mistakes — and the A’s have arguably the worst defense in all of baseball — you have to force them into mistakes. The easiest way to do that is to be aggressive on the base paths.

The Red Sox took to that strategy on Sunday, and they didn’t waste much time. After Mookie Betts led the game off with a walk, Dustin Pedroia hit a blooper into no-man’s land in right field. The throw back into the infield was way off the mark, and Betts turned on the jets and scored from first on the play. Most runners would at least slow down heading into third, but as soon as the throw sailed into left field Betts knew he could score and just put his head down and ran. He really is a treat to watch on the bases. Not only is he fast, but he’s incredibly smart. After that, Pedroia moved to third on a wild pitch and they were able to get him home on a sacrifice fly from Andrew Benintendi.
