Betts went 4 for 4 and drove in four runs. It marked his third career slam.
“I just got some good pitches to hit and put some good swings on it today,” Betts said. “I think just all of us putting together good at-bats kind wears guys down.”
Betts joined Ken Griffey Jr. (1996) as the only players to have four hits, five runs and four RBI in a game against the Yankees.
