Blue Jays humiliate Red Sox at Fenway with franchise record 28 runs


Three issues you need to know from the Blue Jays’ 28-5 win over the Crimson Sox in Boston:

Bizarro ball

It was The Bloodbath on Jersey Avenue, previously 4 Yawkey Approach. If Fenway Park had a roof, it could have caved in beneath the barrage of Blue Jays hits and ding-dongs. There was nowhere for the Crimson Sox to take cowl because the Jays set a franchise document for runs, surpassing the 24 that crossed the plate on June 26, 1978, towards Baltimore. The most important-league document is 30, set by the Texas Rangers in 2007, additionally towards Baltimore.

Much more of a humiliation for the Bosox is matching a document for runs allowed that dates all the way in which again to July 7, 1923, once they have been pasted by Cleveland. Ninety-nine years. Similar ballpark.

And nonetheless, a quarter-century into the regrettable custom, the sellout crowd provided their seventh inning rendition of “Candy Caroline.” As if it was simply one other scorching summer season night on the outdated Fens.

We’ve obtained numbers

Each Jays starter had at the very least two hits and two runs scored. They scored 11 runs on 10 knocks within the fifth inning alone. Solely catcher Alejandro Kirk did not tally an RBI knock. Matt Chapman, Raimel Tapia, Teoscar Hernandez and Danny Jansen all went yard — Jansen cranking a brace of four-baggers.

It was just about a tater or strikeout toss-up the complete night time, for each squads. Toronto simply didn’t whiff as a lot, whereas starter Kevin Gausman punched out 10.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr., with half a dozen hits, tied a franchise document set by Frank Catalanotto towards the Chicago White Sox on Could 1, 2004.

The twilight zone

It was most likely probably the most gob-smacking episode of a sport that had loads of them. Tapia obtained the ball rolling with an inside-the-park grand slam on a ball misplaced within the twilight within the third that made the rating 10-0.
