Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts made one of the best throws of the season, making a 305-foot on-the-fly laser-focused throw to Rafael Devers at third base to nail Avisaíl García, attempting to stretch a double into a triple in the bottom of the sixth inning. Ji-Man Choi had doubled ahead of García and scored easily on the ground ball slapped down the right field line, but García couldn’t outrun Betts’ arm.

Choi scoring pushed the Rays’ lead to 7-4. Along with the assist (his 10th of the season), Betts is 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. On the year, the reigning AL MVP is batting .292/.389/.520 with 28 home runs, 78 RBI, 133 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases across 694 plate appearances.
