Mookie Betts walk-off single lifts Red Sox over Blue Jays

Tuesday April 28th, 2015

Boston Red Sox centerfielder Mookie Betts hit a walk-off single to defeat the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.

Betts scored the tying run on a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning and stepped to the plate in the ninth with two runners on base. The first pitch he saw was a wild pitch, and the runners advanced to second and third. 

Toronto brought the infield in and Betts took advantage of the fielders' limited range, poking a liner past shortstop Jose Reyes that allowed Xander Bogaerts to score the winning run. 

Betts was 3–4 in the game with two runs scored and a walk.
