Mookie Betts and Aaron Judge have had impressive seasons this year. And we’ll get to see both players compete in the postseason. At the plate, these brothers have caused a lot of havoc for opposing teams.
These two are at the top of the rankings in the league when it comes to runs scored. Judge is leading the way with 125 runs scored through 144 games and Betts is right behind him with 112 runs scored through 130 games played.
The last time an MLBbro led the league in this category was in 2019 when Betts finished the season with 135 runs scored. When you talk about the best players in the game right now, you have to mention these two ballers.
What they are doing on the field is remarkable and barring any unforeseen setbacks, these legendary MLBbros will both be in the Hall of Fame one day. And let’s talk about how much of an impact they each provide at the top of the lineup. There’s a reason their managers put them in the leadoff spot.
Betts has been the spark at the top of the lineup for the Dodgers since he joined the team back in 2020. He’s the type of player that can set the tone of the game and he can come through big in clutch situations.

Through 130 games this season, Betts has hit 35 home runs and 35 doubles, becoming the first Dodger to reach this accomplishment since 1954. To score runs you have to get on base, and that’s one thing Betts does well.
Judge has had an MVP season, again proving why he is a Top 5 MLB player. The 30-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down.
Not only is he smashing balls out of the ballpark, he’s taking good swings and putting himself in a good position to have success at the plate.
This is the second time in his career where he surpassed 100 runs scored. The first time came back in 2017 when he finished with 128 runs scored. That same season he also hit 52 home runs.
Like Betts, Judge can provide a lot of spark at the top of the lineup. Whether he’s in the leadoff spot or batting third, he is always a tough out. And all it takes for Judge is one swing to be able to change the tone of the game. He is making history this year and it’s been exciting watching what he’s done on the field.
