Topps Now: September 2, 2022

Connor Wong received his first extended look in the Majors in 2022.  The catcher was acquired from the Dodgers in the Mookie Betts trade.  He did not produce a lot, but was steady behind the plate.

On September 2, the Red Sox defeated the Rangers 9-1.  Wong started the game at catcher and hit his first Major League home run, a two-run shot.  It was his only hit of the game.  Nick Pivetta started the game, but was pulled after three innings.  Reliever Tyler Danish got the win.  Xander Bogaerts, Rafael Devers, J.D. Martinez and Enrique Hernandez each had two hits.  Hernandez and Arroyo joined Wong as hitters driving in two runs.

Wong, Reese McGuire and Jorge Alfaro will compete in the Spring for the catching platoon.
