"Mookie Betts extended his hitting streak to 13 games in Boston's win over Tampa Bay on Friday, during which he's hitting .453 (24 for 53). He's the first player age 22 or younger to get a hit in 13 straight games and hit .450 in that span since Alex Rodriguez late in the summer of 1996. The only other Red Sox players to have a 13-game span like that before turning 23 years old are Bobby Doerr (1938), Ted Williams (1941) and Billy Goodman (1948)."

Slicing things a bit thin:

"Rays leadoff batter Brandon Guyer went 0-for-1 with a strikeout against the Red Sox. Unremarkable, right? Not so fast! He drew two walks, was hit by a pitch, stole two bases and failed to score, becoming only the fourth leadoff hitter in the past 100 years with two walks, a hit-by-pitch, two steals, and zero runs scored."
