The Toronto Blue Jays could not avoid playing the surging Boston Red Sox because the schedule said they must, but they were able to prevent being swept in the three-game series at the Rogers Centre.

And, of course, that one rotten outing came on July 13 against the Red Sox, who humbled the 24-year-old for seven runs (four earned) off eight hits in just three innings of work. He walked three batters and recorded five strikeouts.

Betts becomes the first Red Sox hitter to hit for the cycle since Brock Holt managed the feat back in 2015.

Betts singled to lead off the game, tripled in the second inning, and doubled in the fourth.

Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez hit his major league-leading 35th home run, a solo drive in the fifth.

In improving to 2-2 in his rookie season, Borucki served up nine hits over his five innings - but held the Red Sox to a respectable four runs.

The Jays' bullpen took over from there, with the only run surrendered by Jaime Garcia, Tyler Clippard, Ryan Tepera and Giles coming off the bat of Betts.

"He really battled", manager John Gibbons said. And they're hot right now.

A fan in the left field seats caught two home runs balls, snagging Martinez's drive in the fifth and Grichuk's in the sixth. Though the Red Sox have had a proclivity for shining late in games all season, they couldn't rally in this one.

The 2016 A.L. Cy Young Award victor was uncharacteristically off, issuing two walks to the first two batters he faced.

"I've had some opportunities before and to finally succeed is a good feeling", said Betts, who has reached base in 25 of his past 42 plate appearances against Toronto. Pannone served an 80-game performance enhancing drug suspension earlier this season. Eovaldi has not allowed an earned run in either of his first two starts for Boston. The Blue Jays defeated them 8-5 at Rogers Centre. He is the first player in Orioles history to have three hits in his first major league game. LHP Blake Snell (12-5, 2.27) starts for the Rays.
