Mookie Betts hits for the cycle against Blue Jays

Mookie Betts hits for the cycle against Blue Jays

Betts' cycle is the 320nd in Major League Baseball history and the first of this season. With a 3-2 count, Betts hit an 85.6 miles per hour slider from Giles out to left for the solo home run. The 4-for-4 performance raised the MVP candidate's batting average to.347 for the season.

Betts has come up just short of the cycle eight times in his career, including twice needing a home run.

Red Sox fans, you can personally thank the Astros for throwing away their integrity by trading Ken Giles to the Blue Jays for Roberto Osuna, because now Giles, the disaster artist, is the late-innings guy for Toronto.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tweeted That She Will Not Debate Ben Shapiro
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old democratic socialist from NY who scored a shocking primary victory over Rep. Lewinsky, who knows from trouble and male attention, weighed in by calling Ocasio-Cortez a "badass".

"There's not many outs in that lineup and they're hot right now but he's got that knack and I think there's something special about that kid", Gibbons said. The first three hits were off Borucki, who got the win despite giving up four runs on nine hits over five innings. Grichuk then hit a two-run home run to cap a three-run inning and gave the Blue Jays a 7-4 lead. J.D. Martinez hit a solo home run, his 35 of the season. Grichuk hit his two-run dinger in the fifth for his 16th.

Stanton's 28th homer was measured at 196 kph, the fastest long ball tracked by Statcast since the system was introduced in 2015.

Meanwhile, Porcello walked the first two batters he faced and it only got worse from there.

England vs. India, second Test: Tourists facing defeat at Lord's
But it was new-ball partner Mohammed Shami who made the breakthrough when Keaton Jennings (11) was lbw playing across the line. The 29-year old has 57 centuries to his name along with approximately 17,000 runs for India across all the formats.

But Toronto evened the game at 2-2 in the home half of the first on a Justin Smoak single and a RBI groundout from Grichuk. Betts, Holt and Leon Culberson in 1943 are the only Red Sox to cycle from the leadoff spot. The rightfielder inched closer to completing the cycle with a double in the fourth inning. The trio totaled seven extra-base hits, with Span and Segura each recording their ninth homers. Verlander (11-7) was ejected for arguing a balk call after setting a season high for runs allowed and missing a chance for his 200th career victory.

The Sox move on to Baltimore for a four game series starting tonight.

In Cleveland, Michael Brantley's ninth-inning single gave the Indians their second straight walk-off victory over Minnesota.
