Red Sox Is Tumbling-Toronto Blue Jays Outplayed Them And Extended Their Losing Streak To Five Games

mlb

In the last five games, Red Sox have tumbled, and now the chances of getting a wild card spot are limited. They still have 16 games left and 8 1/2 games to the wild-card spot.

On Wednesday night, Red Sox misfortunate only worsened after being toppled by New York Yankees from the NL East top. They were outplayed 8-0 by Toronto Blue Jays extending their losing streak to five games.

Speaking after the game, manager Alex Cora said that they didn’t expect that situation. He added that they tried their best, but there was no positive result. The last ten days have been the season-worst period for Red Sox. In five games, the club only scored nine runs.

Blue Jays pitchers dealt Boston two hits, both singles which snapped a 159 game streak with at least one extra-base hit. Trevor Kelly was on Red Sox bullpen, but Clue Jays Cavan Biggio doubled on a ball that third baseman Rafael Devers messed up in the left field. Biggio went on a stolen third base and scored on Vladimir Guerrero Jr. sacrifice fly.

Rowdy Tellez followed and hit his 19th homer of the year. Ryan Weber allowed four straight one-out singles and Toronto continued the 4-0 lead. Cora went to Brian Johnson who made a pop up to Tellez. Cora then called Travis, who gave up a double that scored two. Teoscar two-run shot off Lakins extended Blue Jays lead to 8-0.

Red Sox started tumbling when they were swept by Yankees a month ago. One thing that might be contributing to this is the absence of David Price and Chris Sale due to injuries. Now the team is a disappointment, this is unusual, and nobody would have predicted.
