Betts' blasts burn Jays

TORONTO—Mookie Betts set the early tone for the Boston Red Sox last night and delivered the final blow, too.

He hit a lead-off homer off Toronto starter Aaron Sanchez and later burned reliever Danny Barnes with a two-run shot as the Red Sox edged the Blue Jays 4-3.

Betts has eight homers on the season and owns the Red Sox franchise record with 14 career lead-off homers.
