Mookie Betts hit a smoldering .368 with five home runs, 15 RBIs, five stolen bases and a 1.068 OPS in July. Betts is the second Red Sox player to win the honor this year, following Jackie Bradley Jr.’s win in May. In July, Betts was first in the AL with 10 doubles and 16 extra base hits. Betts also became the first player in club history to lead off consecutive games at Fenway Park with a home run, according to Elias. 
Daniel Murphy
 just keeps on hitting. In his 22 July games, he led the majors with 11 doubles, 18 extra-base hits and a .744 slugging percentage. He led the NL in RBI with 23 on his way to a .346 batting average. He hit safely in 13 straight games and reached 20 home runs for the first time in his major league career on July 27th. This is his second Player of the Month award this season, following his win in May.
