Mookie Betts ties Ted Williams for this impressive Red Sox team record

Mookie Betts ties Ted Williams for this impressive Red Sox team record

Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts is a run-scoring machine.

Betts scored a run in his 13th consecutive game as a result of Rafael Devers' three-run homer in Thursday afternoon's matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park. The reigning American League MVP award winner now is tied with Hall of Famer and Red Sox legend Ted Williams for the longest run-scoring streak in a single season in team history.

Betts on Wednesday became the first Red Sox player since Nomar Garciaparra in 1998 to score a run in 12 straight games.

The 26-year-old star's league-leading 84 runs entering Thursday were 10 more than Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout in second place.

Betts is batting .281 with 13 home runs, 43 RBI and a .396 on-base percentage in 94 games this season.

Ex-Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright to undergo Tommy John surgery

Ex-Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright to undergo Tommy John surgery

Steven Wright's Red Sox career came to an end on Friday, and it'll be a while before the knuckleballer makes his return to the mound.

Shortly after being released by Boston, Wright revealed to WEEI's Rob Bradford he will undergo Tommy John surgery on Tuesday to repair the torn UCL in his right elbow.

"I'm fully committed to rehab and making a comeback," Wright told Bradford. "I feel better than I have ever and want to get back to a position I haven't been in since 2016, which is healthy. My sole focus is to get healthy and stay focused."

Wright made only six appearances for the Red Sox in 2019 as he tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance in January and served an 80-game suspension. The 35-year-old also served a 15-game suspension in 2018 for violating the league's domestic violence policy.

Wright posted a 24-16 record with a 3.86 ERA in 81 total appearances during his tenure in Boston.

Watch David Ortiz and Alex Rodriguez reminisce on 2004 ALCS

Fifteen years ago, the Boston Red Sox pulled off the impossible vs. the New York Yankees in the 2004 American League Championship Series.

David Ortiz and Alex Rodriguez took a trip down memory lane to relive the unforgettable moments in a nostalgia-filled video for FOX Sports. The two legends relive everything from A-Rod slapping the ball out of Bronson Arroyo's glove to Curt Schilling's bloody sock.

A-Rod shared the video and wrote about his painful memories from the series on Twitter. Watch and read below:

Credit to Rodriguez for being a good sport (imagine reading that sentence 15 years ago?...)

The Yankees could find themselves ousted from another ALCS on Friday night when they take on the Astros in a do-or-die Game 5. They would have to win three straight games, including two on the road, to advance to the World Series.

The last team to do that? You guessed it. The '04 Red Sox.
