Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts screams out in pain as he slides back to first base as Texas Rangers left fielder Ryan Rua misses the throw during the first inning of the MLB game at Fenway Park on Wednesday

Andrew Benintendi bolstered his All-Star credentials, then happily left it up to the fans to decide.

The over is a ideal 8-0 in the last eight meetings between these two teams at Fenway and 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams overall.

There is a strong chance one of those moves will be the return of Jaime Garcia, who could come off the disabled list and rejoin the Blue Jays ahead of Saturday's game. The 24-year-old Travis appeared in four games with the Red Sox this season, and has collected two hits and three RBIs over that span.

Fenway Park has been electric as of late.

Up stepped Betts, who tripled, bringing in two base-runners and giving the Red Sox the 4-3 lead.

Of the current Blue Jays, Devon Travis, who hit a grand slam in Wednesday night's 9-5 loss at Atlanta, is 5-for-14 (.357) against Price, but Kevin Pillar is 3-for-19 (.158) with a homer, Russell Martin 5-for-29 (.172), Yangervis Solarte 3-for-16 (.188) and Curtis Granderson 10-for-51 (.196) Granderson, however has hit four homers against Price. "You've got a very athletic guy in right field - this is his home ballpark - and he knows how to play it". Blue Jays reliever Jake Petricka (1-0) earned the win with two scoreless innings.

Brewers starter Junior Guerra (6-6), who had won three starts in a row, gave up six runs and nine hits in four innings, with four strikeouts and two walks.

President Trump gestures as he walks on the course of his golf resort, in Turnberry, Scotland July 14, 2018 . Ben Stewart, from Greenpeace, said: 'Theresa May should not have dignified Trump with a visit to the UK.

Blake Swihart and Bradley started the rally on back-to-back doubles with one out. He made two relief appearances against them earlier this year, but failed to record an out each time, surrendering a total of four earned runs on three hits and a walk.

The Red Sox called up infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill in.

Odor, whose homer in the second cleared the Texas bullpen and landed deep in the tunnel in right, singled and Isiah Kiner-Falefa doubled before Workman came on to face Gallo, whose double to centre scored two to pull the Rangers to 6-4. Tyler Thornburg (scoreless fifth) and Ryan Brasier (scoreless sixth and seventh) also kept things close. And the Red Sox will have a couple of 11-game winners to help get them there. Fernando Rodney, summoned with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, got the final two outs for his 21st save. "Whatever happens. It's out of my hands".

Not all the news is great for the high-flying Red Sox.

"I nearly went down", Betts said with a chuckle after going 2 for 4 with five RBIs. "My legs will be exhausted probably tomorrow from running and stuff". In a few days, there won't be any regular-season baseball.Friday's scores Rangers at Orioles, 7:05 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Brewers at Pirates, 7:05 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Nationals at Mets, 7:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Blue Jays at Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Phillies at Marlins, 7:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Yankees at Indians, 7:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Diamondbacks at Braves, 7:35 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Tigers at Astros, 8:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Royals at White Sox, 8:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Rays at Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Reds at Cardinals, 8:15 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Mariners at Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET (GameTracker) Angels at Dodgers.
