Boston Red Sox

Mookie Betts delivered one of the most thrilling moments of the 2018 season on Thursday, blasting a go-ahead grand slam to power the Boston Red Sox to a 6-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Betts blasted the four-bagger in the fourth inning off Jays starter J.A. Happ, who threw a staggering 46 pitches in the inning and was chased from the game after the homer. On the 13th pitch of the at-bat, with the Red Sox down 2-1 at the time, Betts launched it all the way out of Fenway Park and onto Lansdowne St. to put the Sox up 5-2.

On the mound, David Price settled in after a rough first inning to allow three runs in 6.2 innings, striking out eight to improve to 10-6 on the season. Craig Kimbrel shut the door for his 29th save.

Up Next: The series continues between the Red Sox and Blue Jays on Friday night. Rick Porcello (11-3, 3.58 ERA) will go for his 12th win against Ryan Borucki (0-1, 2.25 ERA).
