Mookie Betts Is The FN Player Of The Month For August

(Icon Sportswire)
In July, Mookie Betts shared our Player Of The Month award with Rick Porcello. While Porcello was again solid this past month, the Red Sox right-fielder has won our award outright for August. In 29 games, Betts hit an astounding .378, with an on-base percentage of .414. Mookie also led the team in slugging for the month—with a .672 mark. He also had a ridiculous OPS of 1.086 for August. You really can't get much more dominant at the plate than Mookie was during the month. For example, he led the team in runs scored (21), hits (45), doubles (8), home runs (9), RBIs (27) and stolen bases (4). Congratulations, Mookie on being named the FenwayNation August Player Of The Month!
