I think it is now safe to say that outside of Fenway Park, (.332 Avg, 15 homeruns and 57 RBI) Camden Yards is Mookie Betts' favorite ballpark. The All-Star hit another couple of Ding Dongs again last night, to help the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory in Baltimore.
Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 last night, with 2 homeruns and scored all 5 of the Red Sox runs, in their 5-3 win at Camden. We knew coming into this game that Mookie loves to hit in Camden Yards, and his numbers this season will prove that.
With last night's game, Mookie has played in just 5 games in Baltimore this season, but the statistics would have you think otherwise. He has hit safely in 10 of his 23 at bats, good enough for a .435 average. He has also driven in 12 RBI, and struck out only 1 time.
The most absurd stat is that he has homered 7 times...seven. Did I mention he has only played there 5 times this year? For reference, Chris Davis has only homered 9 times at Camden, but he's played there 56 times this season.
To answer your next question, the Sox have one more games left in this series, then a 4-game series in Baltimore towards the end of September. Mookie has 5 games left to dazzle us against the O's, and there is no doubt it will be must watch television.
