Final: Blue Jays 4, Red Sox 3

The Toronto Blue Jays snapped their seven-game streak on the backs of the Red Sox, 4-3, handing the Sox their fourth straight defeat.

Mookie Betts hit the first pitch of the game out for a homer. But the only other scoring for the Red Sox came in the fifth on consecutive doubles by Rafael Devers  (No. 50) and J.D. Martinez and, one out later, a run-scoring single by Andrew Benintendi. The Sox didn't get another baserunner after the sixth.

Nathan Eovaldi threw 93 pitches, but lasted only 4.1 innings, allowing three runs. The Jays went ahead for good on a two-run homer by Rowdy Tellez off reliever   in the fifth.

IN-GAME OBSERVATIONS:

10:11   The Red Sox don't have a hit since the fifth inning, having gone down in order in each of the last three innings against the Toronto bullpen.

9:03    That's all for Nathan Eovaldi, who is gone after 4.1 innings, having thrown 93 pitches.

8:48   Andrew Benintendi, in a good at-bat against a lefty, drops a bloop single into center, scoring J.D. Martinez with the go-ahead run.

8:40  That's 50 doubles for Rafael Devers. He becomes the youngest player in team history to reach that mark.

8:37   Terrific play by Vladimir Guerrero Jr. who picks a hot shot off the bat of Betts, tumbles and makes a strong throw to first for the out.

8:29  Home run derby continues as Reese McGuire hammers a hanging slider out to right. Three runs in the game, all of them on solo homers.

8:11  Cavan Biggio take a big cut and drive it out to right, tying the game.

7:09 Mookie Betts, on the very first pitch of the night, homers off the left field foul pole.  Homer No. 28 Betts. He's also now reached base in 24 straight, with 15 homers in his last 61 games.
