 Mookie Betts hit his first homer since coming back from the disabled list in the third inning of Wednesday's series finale against the Orioles.


Betts belted a 3-2 pitch from rookie Yefry Ramirez, making his Major League debut, into the seats in right-center field to give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead. It was Betts' 12th career home run at Camden Yards. The right fielder now has 18 home runs this season.


A left abdominal strain sidelined Betts from May 26 until two days ago, but he's played in two of the three games in this series and said he feels fine.
