Mookie Betts has been the best player in baseball this year, so it was a total letdown when he ended up on the DL with an abdominal strain.

He made his return to the Boston Red Sox lineup on Monday, took a day off on Tuesday and was back at it again on Wednesday against the Baltimore Orioles.

It didn’t take long for him to make his presence felt in a big way, either. During his second at-bat of the game, Betts put the Red Sox up 1-0 with a solo shot — his 18th of the season — that heralded his return in a huge way.

Red Sox nation rejoiced at this development. Here are some of the best reactions we saw.
