Mookie "walks'' it off: In a tie game, the Red Sox loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth with no outs against Texas reliever Jesse Chavez. A flyball to the outfield would have done the trick. As it turned out, Mookie Betts didn't even have to swing the bat. Instead, he worked a five-pitch walk, forcing in pinch-runner Marco Hernandez with the winning run. "He's got to get a strike,'' said Betts of Chavez. "He's the one kind of in trouble there so you can be a little bit more picky in that situation. I was pretty confident (that we could get the run home) knowing that he had to come to me at that point.'' Betts hadn't done anything of note in his first four plate appearances on the afternoon, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. And the box score will show that he didn't collect a hit in driving home the game-winner. But he did get the RBI and an impromptu Gatorade shower at first base, which may be a first for someone drawing a base on balls.
