Franchise record: Jays score 28 points in same game< /p> UPDATE DAY

The Toronto Blue Jays didn't take long to make their baseball matchup against the Boston Red Sox look like a football game on Friday at Fenway Park, scoring the equivalent four touchdowns in a 28-5 win.

At the same time, the only Canadian team in major league baseball shattered its team record for the most runs scored in a single game. The previous mark was set on June 26, 1978, in a 24–10 win over the Baltimore Orioles. However, she was unable to beat the major league baseball record of 30 points, set in 2007 by the Texas Rangers, again against the Orioles.

In the duel of the day, the visitors added seven runs to the board in the third inning and four in the next, but it was in their fifth at bat that they did the most damage, with 11 more runs.

Under a total of 29 hits, several Blue Jays players had quite the game offensively, including Danny Jansen, who had three hits to the safety, including two homers, for six RBIs, in addition to crossing him -even plate four times.

The highlight of the evening, however, went to Raimel Tapia, who scored a grand slam inside the field. The Blue Jays were already leading 6-0 when the outfielder came face to face with pitcher Austin Davis, who was arriving on the mound at the same time as a replacement for starter Nathan Eovaldi, while Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Santiago Espinal and Jansen were all on the line. trails. Tapia hit a high fly ball to center field, but outfielder Jarren Duran lost sight of the ball and it hit the ground several yards behind him, before crashing into the wall, allowing Tapia to complete his turn trails.

It was the second in-bounds grand slam in Blue Jays history and the third in major league baseball since the turn of the millennium.

Tapia finished the game with three hits and six RBIs.

Gurriel Jr. was the only other Jays player to drive in at least four runs, having hit five of six hits.

On the mound, Kevin Gausman (7-7) probably didn't need as much help offensively, but he still got the win. In five innings of work, he gave up three runs on seven hits and left 10 opponents in the dust.
