The devastating inside-the-park grand slam by Toronto Blue Jays’ Raimel Tapia left the Boston Red Sox in full humiliation with a franchise-worst of most runs scored against any Red Sox team… ever!
The Toronto Blue Jays broke several records today including most runs in a game with twenty-eight, most hits in a game with twenty-nine, the biggest winning margin of twenty-three, and tied most runs in an inning by eleven.
Every Blue Jays player had at least two hits
Danny Jansen had a terrific performance by homering twice and driving in a total of six runs while Matt Chapman and Teoscar Hernandez had solo homers that broke their 1976 scoring record of 24 runs, that time on June 26th was against the Baltimore Orioles.
They broke their record
Boston Red Sox break their record too, this time of yielded runs, the last time they were down so low was against Cleveland in 1923, they lost 27-3.
It wasn’t all bad, at least a couple got married in Fenway Park, cue in the sad trombone
How it all happened
Toronto was leading 6-0 in the top of the third while Tapia had an in-field grand slam, and that is when everything went downhill. Fast forward to the fifth and they were already 15-3 to then end up with 28-5.
The record for more runs in a single game in Modern MLB history is for the Texas Rangers where they scored 30 runs against the Baltimore Orioles.
