LA Dodgers’ lead-off Mookie Betts continues to perform well worth 460 billion won.
In an away game against the Washington Nationals at Washington DC Nationals Park on the 25th (Korea Standard Time), Betts led the team to a 9-4 victory by swinging a bat with three hits and four RBIs in four at-bats, including two home runs.
