The Toronto Blue Jays will quickly have to forget their visit to Fenway Park, since they were swept away by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday.
Major League Baseball’s only Canadian team suffered an 11-5 loss in today’s game. The first three games of the series also ended in victory for the Red Sox, who won 6-5, 7-6 and 8-3.
The difficulties of the Toronto gunners thus continued. Kevin Gausman (2-3) took a beating from opposing hitters, allowing 10 hits and eight earned runs in just three and a third innings.
Rafael Devers and Masataka Yoshida were the Jays’ biggest torturers, both racking up three hits and three and four RBIs, respectively.
After the catastrophic start to his game, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. nevertheless picked up where he left off by hitting a long solo ball to reduce the gap to 6 to 1. The son of the former glory of the Montreal Expos added a double one run in the fifth inning.
The Blue Jays, however, were unable to keep pace with their AL East rivals, who added two runs in the fourth and three runs in the eighth inning.
Brayan Bello (1-1) added the win to his record.
The Blue Jays will take over the collar on Friday, in Pittsburgh, against the surprising Pirates. These, however, have also just suffered a sweep, at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays.
