Toronto (Canada), – Aruban shortstop Xander Bogaerts and third baseman Rafael Dever, with homers, and three RBIs each led the explosive batting of the Boston Red Sox that won Monday by beating 12-2 to the Blue Jays of Toronto.
Having won the last four of the day as the Houston Astros, in a duel of World Series champions, the Red Sox offensive produced 16 hits, including four home runs, with Bogaerts (8) of the leader who left of 5-3, three scores and three runs.
While Devers, who had 5-3, with two touchdowns and three runs produced, hit the fourth homer in so far this season.
First baseman Mitch Moreland also hit three undisputed in five at-bats and three times the floor.
While center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and rookie second baseman Michael Chavis were the other two Red Sox offensive players who threw the ball out of the park.
Bradley Jr. did it for the first time so far this season against the Dominican reliever, rookie Elvis Luciano, in the high part of the sixth episode, with a running back in circulation.
Chavis hit the ninth home run of his surprising start to the season, deciphering pitcher Edwin Jackson’s third-inning pitches with another runner on base.
The rookie second baseman of the Red Sox, the great discovery so far this season, had 5-2 with two RBIs and one score.
The Red Sox left their mark at 25-22 after having had a losing season start of 2-8 and since then they have achieved the 23-14, which allows them to occupy third place in the Eastern Division of the American League, to four games of the New York Yankees (28-17), who are the leaders.
The win went to left-handed starter David Price (2-2), who worked five innings and gave up three hits, including homerun receiver Luke Maile (2) of the Blue Jays, with two runs, which were dirty, did not walk and retired four batters via the punch.
Price, 33, had not launched since May 2 after suffering tendonitis in his left elbow.
The loss was Jackson (0-1), which allowed seven hits, including a home run, with six runs – five were clean – gave a ticket, and took four strikeouts. (EFE).
