Rowdy Tellez drove in four runs, and the Blue Jays bullpen provided Toronto’s injury depleted group of starters a much needed rest. And yet overshadowing Toronto’s 9-1 route of the Boston Red Sox were questions of whether both teams should have played as opposed to sitting out and joining other teams across several sports to protest this past weekend’s shooting by police of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Wisconsin. ?Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo didn’t rule out the possibility of not playing the third and final game of their series against Boston on Thursday. Mitch Moreland homered for the Red Sox (10-21) and starter Colton Brewer (0-2) got the loss.
