Dodgers: Watch Mookie Inch Closer to Career High Homers Per Season

Personally, I can’t remember a day this season that Mookie Betts has not made headlines about a new record or stat.

During Saturday afternoon’s (or night if you’re on the East Coast) game, Betts blasted his 30th home run of the season inching even closer to breaking his personal record of home runs per season.

Watch the bomb here:

This was his 207th career homer and it seems like Betts isn’t stopping anytime soon. Between the two games against Miami, Betts has hit three shots to the stands.

This season, the six time All-Star posts a .278 ERA and .898 OPS with 123 hits and 67 RBI. He’s projected to hit 8 more homers across the next 38 games smashing his career record of 32 home runs in a season set back in 2018. No other Dodger has even hit 20 homers this season.

Unfortunately, this was the only run of the game for the visiting Los Angeles team as a solid and consistent Sandy Alcantara shut down the Dodgers offense.

Although the Boys in Blue fell in round two of the Marlins-Dodgers matchup, they have two more chances to make it up.
