Watch: Mookie Betts breaks slump with solo home run off Clayton Kershaw

Mookie Betts

Mookie Betts broke out of a postseason slump in a big way.

Betts had been 0-for-13 after going 0-for-7 with four strikeouts in Game 3, 0-for-4 in Game 4, and making outs in his first two at-bats in Game 5. But he snapped out of it with a solo home run off Clayton Kershaw in the top of the 6th inning of Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night.

Betts took a 2-2 flat slider from Kershaw and sent it over the wall in left field to give Boston a 3-1 lead.

That was Betts’ first homer of the postseason.

The Red Sox entered the game leading 3-1 in the series and needed one win to capture the World Series title.
