In the wake of Gavin Lux’s neck injury, Mookie Betts could be seeing more time at second base for the Dodgers — and that’s not a bad thing at all.
In the third inning of Monday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Betts fielded a hit off of pitcher Tyler Anderson’s glove and oh-so-smoothly shoveled it to first for a spectacular out.
And as if that wasn’t quite enough, Betts surprised even himself with a sliding grab back in right field on Tuesday.
A walking highlight reel, indeed.
Trea Turner showed off a slick move of his own on Tuesday, and it had nothing to do with his beautiful slide — though it did involve getting very well acquainted with the field.
Turner dove for a ball near third base in the fourth inning and promptly rocketed it across the field to first for an inning-ending out, adding to the fireworks on an eventful night for L.A.
