The Red Sox right fielder rolled a flawless 300 Sunday night in the final qualifying round of the World Series of Bowling in Reno, Nevada.

For Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, it means more time to focus on his other sport: bowling. He called the feat the most important flawless game he has ever rolled.

The 25-year-old won't make the cut for the PBA World Championship, but his ideal game pushed his average score to 204.71 over 35 games in this year's tournament.

The 25-year-old star made his PBA World Series debut in 2015, when he averaged a 190 score.

It pushes you to go very far, but I'm up for it at a time when there are two certain lads (Ronaldo and Messi). I hope that he will bounce back. "Perhaps he is not motivated the same way that he was two years ago".

Betts was averaging over 200 through the first three rounds of competition this year before pulling off his flawless game.

"This is definitely the most important one", Betts told the PBA. "Maybe 10. Not very many". This past season he batted.264, with 24 home runs, 102 RBIs with an OPS of.083 during 153 games, despite having several nagging injuries during the season, that included a wrist problem late during September.

Betts finished 144th in the tournament.
