Red Sox’s Betts hits for the cycle, but Jays avoid the sweep

Red Sox’s Betts hits for the cycle, but Jays avoid the sweep

Ryan Borucki (2-2) picked up his first career win at home.

Eovaldi is 2-0 since coming to Boston and has yet to allow a run in 15 innings through two starts.

It took until August, but Major League Baseball has its first cycle, courtesy of Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts.

Boston lost despite lead-off hitter Mookie Betts hitting for the cycle, getting a home run in his final at bat against Toronto closer Ken Giles in the top of the ninth to round out the scoring.

He's hit his first career walk-off homer, clubbed his 100 career home run, and he's now leading the Majors in batting average. J.D. Martinez hit a solo home run, his 35 of the season.

Johnson (3-3) allowed five runs and six hits to earn his first career win over the Blue Jays. The five-time All-Star, 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor and two-time AL earned run average leader has a career record of 138-74.

Betts continues to put together a stellar MVP-level campaign, raising his OPS to a ridiculous 1.103 in 2018.

This is undoubtedly great news, as the original developers of Torchlight , Runic, shut down around nine months ago. The shared world part points to an online only game with persistent servers and procedurally generated worlds.

Betts had his first shot at the cycle in the sixth inning.

The Blue Jays added a run in the bottom of the sixth against Hector Velazquez when Granderson doubled and Travis singled.

Borucki would go on to earn the win as Toronto (52-62) pulled off a topsy-turvy 8-5 victory to avoid a three-game sweep at the capable hands of the Red Sox (81-35), who were gunning for a seventh straight win.

"I don't know what it is about their lineup", Porcello said.

But Toronto evened the game at 2-2 in the home half of the first on a Justin Smoak single and a RBI groundout from Grichuk.

Boston's Brock Holt is caught stealing second as Toronto's Aledmys Diaz stretches to make the tag in the fifth inning. He doubled off the left-field wall in the fourth. Though the Red Sox have had a proclivity for shining late in games all season, they couldn't rally in this one. Renfroe became the first Padres player to hit home runs and have multiple RBI games in four consecutive games.

James Paxton (10-5) improved to 4-0 in four starts against the Astros this season.
