Mookie Betts went 3-5 with a 2-run home run, driving in 3 runs on Sunday. The problem was he did it for the Los Angeles Dodgers and they beat the Boston Red Sox 7-4 on Sunday afternoon at Fenway.

Betts, now the owner of a 15-game hitting streak went 7-15 against the Boston Red Sox over the weekend. He had 2 doubles, a homer, scored 5 runs and drove in 4 runs.
