The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox
will re-new their rivalry as they battle it out for the division crown. Toronto
looks to make strides while Tampa Bay and Baltimore will fight to stay relevant.
Josh Donaldson, Teoscar Hernandez, and Kendrys Morales spearheaded a night to remember for the Blue Jays offence to stall the Red Sox’s bid for a second consecutive American League East division title.
After GM Dave Dombrowski dealt prized international prospect Yoan Moncada during the offseason, the road is seemingly cleared for touted prospect Rafael Devers, who is tearing up AA pitching with the Portland Sea Dogs.
The game was tied at two heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, but the Red Sox exploded for four runs, three of which were earned, before shutting the defending World Series champs down in the ninth.
