The Toronto Blue Jays set a franchise record for runs in a game, rolling past the Red Sox 28-5. Every Blue Jays starter had at least two hits, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. tied Frank Catalanotto’s franchise record with six. Danny Jansen homered twice and drove in six runs. Matt Chapman and Teoscar Hernandez added solo homers for Toronto.
The Jays already had racked up a 6-0 lead but, with the bases loaded, had an opportunity for even more. Outfielder Raimel Tapia came to the plate with two outs in the top of the 3rd inning. Tapia lofted a pop fly towards center fields and dejectedly tossed the bat away, assuming an easy escape. Tapia raced around the bases and easily beat the throw, resulting in an incredibly rare inside-the-park grand slam.
