Raimel Tapia hit an inside-the-park grand slam after a misplay by Boston center fielder Jarren Duran and the Toronto Blue Jays set a franchise record for runs in a game, rolling past the Red Sox 28-5 on Friday night.
Toronto came within two runs of the modern major league record for runs in a game after stranding two in the ninth inning with Boston infielder Yolmer Sánchez on the mound.
Every Blue Jays starter had at least two hits, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. tied Frank Catalanotto’s franchise record with six of them.
The Toronto Blue Jays have broken their all-time record for runs. They now lead the Boston Red Sox 25-3 at Fenway Park.

If the Blue Jays score another run, it will be the most the Red Sox have ever given up in one game. This team has been around since 1901. pic.twitter.com/Zhuf6d2gi1
