Sox Go All 'Canada Day' On Blue Jays, 12-6

()We'll see you your national holiday and raise you our national holiday. The Red Sox took a page out of the Blue Jays playbook and put a whoopin' on their neighbors to the north, 12-6. Boston emulated the Jays by putting up a big first inning (eight runs), and despite the worst efforts of Wade Miley and Craig Breslow, coasted most of the way. The 19-hit Red Sox attack was led by Alejandro De Aza (3-5, 4 RBIs), Mookie Betts (3-6, 2 RBI), Brock Holt (4-5), Xander Bogaerts (4-6, 2 RBIs), and David Ortiz (3-run HR). Miley went five innings, giving up seven hits and four earned runs. The win...

Deven Marrero product of defensive shift

TORONTO — It was one of the first things Deven Marrero did as a major leaguer, and nobody seemed surprised.Marrero entered the Red Sox’ June 28 game against the Tampa Bay Rays as a defensive replacement at second base, a position he’s barely played. Brandon Guyer smoked a one-hopper toward the right side, but Marrero stretched his body and made a diving play, his glove reaching upward as he stopped the ball and threw to first to nail Guyer, who slammed his helmet in frustration.

TORONTO — The onslaught against Blue Jays rookie starter Matt Boyd began with consecutive singles from Mookie Betts, Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts.Boyd was throwing a heavy dose of offspeed pitches until he got to David Ortiz, who entered the game with MLB’s worst average (.120) against left-handed pitchers. Boyd tried spotting a 93-mph fastball on the outer half of the plate and Ortiz took a mighty hack, slicing the ball over the left-field wall for his first homer against a lefty this season.

Not yet.Neither, it seems, is general manager Ben Cherington — and his opinion is the one that really matters.
