Betts Homers In 9th To Complete Cycle

Mookie Betts hit a big home run to give him the first cycle of 2018. More

Though Boston ultimately lost 8-5 to the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night, the Red Sox outfielder added to his impressive season when he hit for the cycle at Rogers Centre - completing the feat in his final at-bat of the game.

Betts got an early start to the night's action with a leadoff single off Toronto starter Ryan Borucki in the first inning.

The rightfielder becomes the first Red Sox player to hit for the cycle in a loss since Carl Yastrzemski in 1965, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Mookie Betts knows how to deliver a good show.

Hargreaves Lansdown posts record FY assets on inflows, market gains
Due in part to its higher level of profitability, Hargreaves Lansdown was able to increase total dividends per share by 38%. Despite the decent results, shares in the company were down three per cent in early trading on Tuesday.

And when his teammates scored three times in the bottom of the fifth inning to break a 4-4 deadlock, highlighted by a two-run home-run swat by Randal Grichuk, his second in as many nights, it provided Borucki with his sweet revenge.

Borucki gave up a solo home run to J.D. Martinez in the fourth, his homer less streak coming to an end at 47.1 innings, tied for the third longest all time by a Blue Jay to start their career. Grichuk hit his two-run dinger in the fifth for his 16th. The Blue Jays tied it later in the inning.

"I'm trying to be competitive and have good at-bats", Smoak said of his streak.

And it felt pretty satisfying considering that Pannone is just recently back after serving an 80-game suspension levied by Major League Baseball after testing positive for a banned performance enhancing drug.

Grichuk followed with an RBI fielder's choice to tie it 2-2. Martinez now has MLB-leading 35 round-trippers.

Boston starter Rick Porcello (14-5) allowed seven runs and six hits in four innings.

After getting eaten alive in his first encounter against baseball's best back in July, Borucki rebounded in strong fashion on Thursday night at Rogers Centre, doing just enough to help Toronto gain at the very least a measure of respect from the runaway American League East leaders.

Betts hit a no-doubt home run to left in the ninth inning off Toronto closer Ken Giles to record the cycle. "It sucks that I did it in a loss but turn the page and get ready for tomorrow".
