Mookie Betts homers but Boston Red Sox lose, 4-3, to Blue Jays in series opener

For the Blue Jays, he was another in a long line of different names and numbers to throw the first pitch in a game this season.

The Toronto Blue Jays need a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games.

Tellez hit a two-run homer off lefty Josh Taylor in the bottom of the fifth inning to give Toronto a 4-3 win over the Red Sox in the opener of a three-game series in Toronto.

Justin Shafer (2-1) pitched 1 1/3 innings as Toronto won for the first time since August 31.

"We didn't keep the ball in the ballpark", Cora said. The Red Sox slugger lined one off the foul screen in left for his 28th homer.

Red Sox: RHP Jhoulys Chacin (3-10, 5.66) made his Boston debut as an opener against the Yankees on September 6, striking out four in two scoreless innings. Ken Giles closed things out in the ninth for his 19th save. McGuire went deep in the fourth for his fifth homer of the season.

The Red Sox chased Zeuch in the fifth after doubles by Rafael Devers and J.D. Martinez.

Toronto Blue Jays' Reese McGuire (10) is greeted by Jonathan Davis after McGuire hit a home run against the Boston Red Sox during the third inning of a baseball game Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019, in Toronto. Biggio also came across after reaching on a leadoff walk.

"I've finally found a little something I can maintain, so I'm just trying to ride it", Betts said. "Sometimes in situations when I was younger, I was trying to hit balls a country mile when all you need to do is hit it right over the wall".

The announced crowd of 17,819 stirred when the Blue Jays loaded the bases in the sixth for Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs.

Sharing the honour along with Zeuch are Anthony Kay, Ryan Feierabend, Neil Ramirez, Buddy Boshers, David Phelps, Daniel Hudson, Ryan Borucki, Derek Law, Edwin Jackson, Matt Shoemaker, Sean Reid-Foley, Thomas Pannone, Clay Buchholz, Wilmer Font, Clayton Richard, Jacob Waguespack, Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez, and Trent Thornton.

Boston put two runners on in the ninth before Giles got Devers to fly out to end the game, which took three hours 37 minutes to play. That moved the Blue Jays into a tie for second-most in Major League Baseball history, trailing only the 1915 Philadelphia Athletics (24 starters). Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 3-10 with a 5.60 ERA and 84 strikeouts this season. Zeuch allowed two runs on three hits in his only other appearance, a four-inning relief stint against Atlanta on September 3.
