The formation of John Schneider is therefore in first place among the teams drafted from the American. The New York Yankees remain well ahead, with a 12.5 game lead.
In the match of the day, the visitors scored no less than five runs in the opening inning, and the Red Sox were never able to fully close the gap. A simple from Cavan Biggio good for two points then a triple from three points from Raimel Tapia are at the origin of this cushion.
Tapia, Danny Jansen and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. added the other points by all three going to first base.
Ross Stripling did well for the Jays allowing just two runs, five hits and one walk in four innings. The victory nevertheless went to the record of Tim Mayza (4-0), perfect in two thirds of an inning.
In the case of the Sox, it was a fifth straight loss. Having started the game on the mound, Brayan Bello (0-2) inherited a second loss in three career starts.
