G95: Blue Jays 10, Red Sox 4

Blue Jays - 031 002 004 - 10 14  0
Red Sox   - 100 030 000 -  4  9  1
Andrew Cashner did not fare that well in his Red Sox debut (5-8-6-2-2, 92). His teammates had just rallied with two outs to tie the game at 4-4 in the fifth and his first pitch of the sixth was hit out of the park by Justin Smoak.

After Freddy Galvis singled, it was time for Cashner to cash out. (He had pitched at least six innings in each of his last five starts. So much for that 'streak' ...)

Josh Taylor came in and committed a throwing error and threw a wild pitch, allowing Galvis to eventually score. Heath Hembree and Ryan Weber were abused for four more runs in the ninth.

Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts each had three hits and two RBI. ... Darwinzon Hernandez pitched the eighth inning, walking one batter and striking out two. ... The Red Sox turned four double plays and Andrew Benintendi had two outfield assists.

Meanwhile, in New York, the Yankees scored six runs in the eighth inning, beating the Rays 8-3 and pushing the Red Sox back to 10 GB.

AL East: MFY 8, Rays 3. ... MFY –, TBR 6.0, BOS 10.0.

I realized the game was a lost cause when I found my mind drifting to the number of ways I could turn the name "Waguespack" into an obscenity. And Phelps is the poster boy for MLB's abject failure to "speed up the game".
