After being selected in the fifth round of the 2011 MLB Draft, Brentwood native Mookie Betts hit his first major league home run Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs.

It was a towering two-run shot over the historic Green Monster in left field at Fenway Park.

The home run came in the fifth inning off Cubs reliever Carlos Villanueva.

Betts played baseball at nearby Overton High School in Brentwood.
