Mookie Betts doubled on a check swing because that's the kind of season he's having

The AL East champion Red Sox have enjoyed a marvelous season from Mookie Betts. Crushing homers, amazing choreographed dance routines with his teammates, slick catches -- he can do it all.
He did it again in Saturday night's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays at Fenway Park. With his hoodie flapping in the wind (it was a rather chilly evening), Betts checked his swing on a Jason Grilli offering and, as tends to happen when playing as well as he has this season, wound up on second base with a double: 

Naturally, then, he found himself on third base two batters later and scored on a balk by Jays reliever Roberto Osuna:  

Just another eventful day at the office for the best Carlton Banks imitator this side of Bel-Air.
