Boston Red Sox

TORONTO – The Red Sox fell to the Blue Jays 4-3 Tuesday night in Toronto as the two teams opened up a three-game series.

Mookie Betts led off the game with a homer, but the Blue Jays hit three homers of their own to power the victory.

Cavan Biggio and Reese McGuire both went deep off Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi, before Rowdy Tellez’s two-run shot off Josh Taylor in the fifth inning put Toronto ahead for good.

Eovaldi lasted 4 1/3 innings and was charged with three runs on six hits. He struck out six and walked two.

The Red Sox saw a ninth inning comeback fall short when Rafael Devers left runners at first and second on a fly out to end the game.

The series continues on Wednesday with newcomer Jhoulys Chacin on the Boston for Boston.
