Betts homers to complete the cycle

Grichuk drives 3 runs past Red Sox to help Jays avoid sweep

And when his teammates scored three times in the bottom of the fifth inning to break a 4-4 deadlock, highlighted by a two-run home-run swat by Randal Grichuk, his second in as many nights, it provided Borucki with his sweet revenge.

Justin Smoak picked up a double and two singles to record back-to-back three-hit games.

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.

"I don't know if you can [stop Betts from hitting], especially because he's hot", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Betts.

Toronto's second run came across after Grichuk hit into a fielder's choice. "All you can hope is they get themselves I guess". Martinez now has MLB-leading 35 round-trippers. But it wasn't until the ninth that Betts pulled off his first career cycle with a home run over the left-field wall at Rogers Centre off Toronto's new closer, Ken Giles.

Boston starter Rick Porcello (14-5) allowed seven runs and six hits in four innings.

The Sox also boosted their division lead over the Yankees, who lost to the Rangers, back to nine games. He's surrendered 21 career home runs against Minnesota.

After going 3-for-3, Betts took an anti-climactic walk in the sixth frame before hitting his 27th home run of the year in the ninth.

Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (right ankle sprain) threw effectively in a simulated game, with positive results.

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

The offensive explosion rendered irrelevant Eovaldi's first bad start in a Red Sox uniform.

The Blue Jays will start right-hander Marco Estrada (5-8, 4.65 ERA) against Rays left-hander Blake Snell (12-5, 2.27) in the series opener at the Rogers Centre. He is the first player in Orioles history to have three hits in his first major league game.
