"It doesn't surprise me, honestly," said manager Alex Cora after the game. "What he did today, he didn't hit the ball out of the ballpark, but he goes the other way, he steals a few bases, he makes that play."
Statcast™ measured the play as a five-star catch, which is Betts' second of the season. That ties him with seven other players for the most five-star catches in baseball this season.
"He's becoming a force," Cora added. "Not only on the field but in the clubhouse, in the dugout, he's becoming a leader. It's fun to watch. On a daily basis, you're expecting something great, and he'll do it."
Betts covered 88 feet with a 29.9 feet-per-second speed, which puts him just shy of "elite" speed, according to Statcast™. The ball had just a 17 percent catch probability.
