Betts' heroics not enough to lift the Red Sox over Jays

Betts' heroics not enough to lift the Red Sox over Jays

- Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. singled, doubled, and tripled, but alas was stranded on deck to end the ninth a home run shy of the cycle. Obtained on July 25 in a trade with Tampa Bay, the right-hander threw 15 scoreless innings over two starts for the Red Sox, but in this one he put Boston in an 8-3 hole against the team with the worst record in the majors.

He is 2-2 with a 4.62 ERA (25 1/3 s innings, 13 earned runs) in five career starts against the Blue Jays but hasn't faced them since August 15, 2017, in Toronto when he got the win by allowing four runs in six innings.

Boston starter Nathan Eovaldi gave up eight runs, four earned, and 10 hits in 2 2/3 innings.

"I don't know if you can [stop Betts from hitting], especially because he's hot", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Betts. They make me get into the strike zone, they draw some walks, and then they do damage.

Boston (81-35) opened the scoring early against Borucki, taking a 2-0 lead in the first inning when third baseman Eduardo Nunez brought home Betts and Andrew Benintendi with a line drive to right field. After walking in the sixth, Betts hit a one-out drive off Ken Giles in the ninth for his 27th homer of the season. The Blue Jays tied it later in the inning.

"It's a good day but a tough loss", Betts said.


Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (mild left shoulder inflammation) threw a bullpen session before the game and remains on track to come off the disabled list and start Sunday against Baltimore.

Orioles reliever Miguel Castro (2-7) walked three of the five batters he faced.

Like many a big-league pitcher this season, Ryan Borucki has felt the sting of the mighty bats belonging to the Boston Red Sox.

The 2016 A.L. Cy Young Award victor was uncharacteristically off, issuing two walks to the first two batters he faced.

Red Sox: David Price (11-6, 3.93 ERA) will work the first game of a split doubleheader on Saturday. Despite Betts' effort, the Red Sox lost 8-5 to the Blue Jays. LHP Blake Snell (12-5, 2.27) starts for the Rays.
