  • Mookie Betts hits for the cycle against Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ryan Borucki will remember everything about his first major-league victory at home except for the pitching line.

Borucki pitched five innings and allowed four earned runs, nine hits, and three walks as the Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-5 on Thursday.

Grichuk would account for three of the Toronto runs while Teoscar Hernandez also chipped in with a homer, his 18th on the year.

Boston lost despite lead-off hitter Mookie Betts hitting for the cycle, getting a home run in his final at bat against Toronto closer Ken Giles in the top of the ninth to round out the scoring.

Mookie Betts knows how to deliver a good show. "He'll take is walks, too".

"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.

J.D. Martinez hit his major-league leading 35th home run of the season.

Rick Porcello (14-5) lasted just four innings while giving up seven earned runs and six hits. He also recorded two strikeouts. Betts and Andrew Benintendi later scored off Eduardo Nunez's single, putting the Red Sox ahead 2-0.

Smoak's hit extended his hitting streak to a season team-high 13 games.

In a season where the Blue Jays starting pitching plans were mostly torn to shreds, Borucki has come on to be a bit of a revelation. Hernandez hit a solo home run to right field to give Toronto a 4-2 lead.

In the fifth, Boston's Martinez hit a solo homer to cut Toronto's lead to 4-3. Brock Holt followed that with an RBI single to tie the game 4-4. One batter later, Grichuk cashed in the first baseman with a two-run homer that ended Porcello's night, the Red Sox right-hander charged with seven runs in four innings of work.

After getting eaten alive in his first encounter against baseball's best back in July, Borucki rebounded in strong fashion on Thursday night at Rogers Centre, doing just enough to help Toronto gain at the very least a measure of respect from the runaway American League East leaders.
