TORONTO | Mookie monster! Betts homers in 9th to complete cycle
TORONTO — Mookie Betts has circled a few potential cycles in his young career, not surprising considering his rare combination of power and speed.
Boston’s AL MVP contender finally knocked that milestone off his list with his final swing Thursday night.
Betts homered in the ninth inning to complete his first career cycle during the Toronto Blue Jays’ 8-5 win over the Red Sox.
Betts is the 21st Red Sox player to hit for the cycle and the first in the major leagues this season.
