Mookie Betts joins select company
For the second time this season, Betts hit leadoff home runs in back-to-back games against the Twins on Thursday and Friday. Only three other players in the modern era (since 1900) have hit leadoff homers in back-to-back games multiple times within a single season, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.
- Brady Anderson in 1996
- Craig Biggio in 2001
- Alfonso Soriano in 2007
