1. By now you have heard about Mookie Betts‘ incredible week. It was not even a week, actually. Betts hit five home runs in a span of seven at-bats on Tuesday and Wednesday against the Baltimore Orioles.
- The Atlanta Braves have hit 22 homers in 1,757 at-bats this season. Betts’ five HRs in seven ABs is good for 22.72 percent of the total number of HRs the Braves have hit this season.
- The Yankees, from Sunday to Wednesday, scored five total runs in four games.
- Last season, Bryce Harper also accomplished the feat of hitting five HRs in a two-game span.
