Mookie Betts hits for the cycle against Blue Jays

Grichuk drives 3 runs past Red Sox to help Jays avoid sweep

In the second inning, Betts collected the most hard hit of any cycle by knocking a triple, also to left field.

It took until August, but Major League Baseball has its first cycle, courtesy of Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts.

Betts got an early start to the night's action with a leadoff single off Toronto starter Ryan Borucki in the first inning. He allowed one run, three hits and two walks and had three strikeouts in four innings.

"He really battled", manager John Gibbons said.

Toronto's second run came across after Grichuk hit into a fielder's choice.

You want numbers? We've got lots of them. But it wasn't until the ninth that Betts pulled off his first career cycle with a home run over the left-field wall at Rogers Centre off Toronto's new closer, Ken Giles.

Jan Ullrich arrested after allegedly attacking escort in Frankfurt hotel
German police confirmed that a 44-year-old hotel guest had been arrested following a "physical confrontation". In 2013, he admitted to doping, having been served a two-year ban by sporting regulators.

The 25-year-old Betts, who announced on Wednesday that he and his partner are expecting a baby, led off the game in the top of the first with a single to left field.

He made his major league debut on June 26th against the Houston Astros and distinguished himself despite a 7-0 setback to the defending World Series champs, surrendering just two of the runs off six hits over six innings of work. They overwhelmed the Woe's in a 19-12 victory that saw them erase an 8-3 deficit, overcome a back-to-earth start from Nathan Eovaldi, and pile on 14 runs between the sixth and eighth innings.

"It's tough, him and J.D. Martinez are the best in the game right now", said Smoak of Betts.

These Boston Red Sox never say die, and that never was more apparent than in Friday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles.

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

Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (right ankle sprain) threw effectively in a simulated game, with positive results. Despite Betts' effort, the Red Sox lost 8-5 to the Blue Jays. Estrada allowed one run in seven innings against Seattle in his previous outing, snapping a four-start winless streak.
