Mookie Betts has hit himself into some legendary company.

The Boston Red Sox right fielder picked up an RBI groundout during the first inning of Monday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, giving him his 100th RBI of the season.

It's the second straight year that Betts has reached the century mark for RBIs, joining Hall of Famer Ted Williams as the only two players in franchise history with at least 100 RBIs in consecutive seasons before turning 25.

Williams recorded 100-plus RBIs in each of his first four seasons in the majors (1939-1942) before leaving to serve in the military.
