Betts' heroics not enough to lift the Red Sox over Jays

It goes without saying that the Red Sox won.

Consider it a lesson well-learned for the rookie.

Toronto added to their lead in the sixth. "That's the second one in a row against them".

Justin Smoak picked up a double and two singles to record back-to-back three-hit games. Betts is the first member of the Red Sox to hit for the cycle since Brock Holt on June 16, 2015 against the Braves.

Orioles reliever Miguel Castro (2-7) walked three of the five batters he faced.

Betts sent a solo shot to left field off Blue Jays pitcher Ken Giles in the ninth, hitting MLB's first cycle of the 2018 season.

"I don't know if you can [stop Betts from hitting], especially because he's hot", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Betts. "I've got to figure something out against these guys to overcome that". He just keeps attacking.

Teoscar Hernandez and Randal Grichuk smashed home runs off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello to help the Jays snap a three-game losing streak and five game losing streak at home.

Pogba assures Man Utd he wants to stay
After a £52m deal was struck with Shakhtar Donetsk before the World Cup, the Brazilian midfielder agreed to join Man United. Pogba overruled Alexis Sanchez when United were awarded an early penalty despite the protestations of his teammate.

The Blue Jays are 14-28 this season in games when the opposing teams starts a left-hander.

A ninth-round draft pick of the Cleveland Indians in 2013 who arrived in Toronto in a July 31 trade deadline deal a year ago, it marked his first trip into a major-league setting. "The last few weeks have just felt pretty good".

Estrada held the Seattle Mariners to one run, one hit and two walks in seven innings on Saturday in a 5-1 win.

And he has never looked back.

The Rays and Blue Jays are each 9-10 since the All-Star break.

"Maybe just what we need". Sanchez walked two and struck out four. He was gone after four-plus innings.

"I've had some opportunities before and to finally succeed is a good feeling", said Betts, who has reached base in 25 of his past 42 plate appearances against Toronto. Smoak hit an RBI single to cut the lead.

Boston's comeback overshadowed the big league debut of Baltimore centre fielder Cedric Mullins, who had three hits, two RBIs and scored twice.
