After praising an opponent, a Dodgers star receives criticism
On Wednesday night, Mookie Betts praised Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom, but Dodgers insider David Vassegh wasn't too fond of his remarks.
On Wednesday night, Jacob deGrom dominated the Dodgers, giving up only one run on a single home run by Mookie Betts
(and getting some help from his defense, as center-fielder Brandon Nimmo robbed Justin Turner of a game-tying homer).
Mookie smashed a towering home run that travelled 415 feet into the left-field seats after turning around a slider. Betts hit 32 home runs this year, tying a career best.
Betts gave deGrom a positive evaluation following the game, both for the game and for his career, according to Bill Plunkett in the Orange County Register.
Mookie Betts, an outfielder with the Dodgers, described him as "very much the best, perhaps the best to ever pitch." "I don't believe anyone does" (compare).
