'Wright-Sized Mookie-Pa-Looza' Leads Sox Past Houston

We're starting to think this Mookie Betts kid is going to make it after all. The 23-year old went 4-5 last night—including two triples—to lead the Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the formerly good Astros. And, the savior of the pitching rotation, Steven Wright turned in his third straight gem—going  6 2/3 innings giving up no earned runs. Four other Red Sox players had multiple-hit games: Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez, Travis Shaw and Xander Bogaerts. A good win to start off a tough road trip.
