3-run double puts Boston over Toronto

TORONTO -- Chris Sale struck out 13 over eight shutout innings, Mookie Betts hit a three-run double in the 10th and the Boston Red Sox beat the struggling Toronto Blue Jays 4-1 on Thursday.

At 3-12, Toronto is off to the worst start in team history and has lost its first five series for the first time.

Sandy Leon drew a one-out walk from Jason Grilli (0-2), Brock Holt singled to stop an 0-for-12 slide, Andrew Benintendi walked with two outs, and Betts pulled a 2-0 fastball down the left-field line.

Mitch Moreland hit a two-out double in the ninth off Roberto Osuna and scored on Xander Bogaerts' single, but Kendrys Morales homered against Craig Kimbrel (1-0) leading off the bottom half.

Padres 4, Diamondbacks 1 Clayton Richard pitched into the seventh inning and Wil Myers and Austin Hedges homered to lead San Diego over Arizona.

Richard (2-2) gave up a run and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander struck out a season-high eight to win for the first time in his past three starts.

Brandon Maurer pitched the ninth for his third save and second in consecutive nights.

Myers cracked his fourth homer in the first and Hedges added his third in the seventh as the Padres won their second straight to earn a split of the four-game series.

Patrick Corbin (1-3) limited the Padres to three runs or less for the fourth time at Petco Park. But it wasn't enough with Richard keeping the Diamondbacks off-balance with his sinker.

Astros 2, Angels 1 Carlos Beltran hit his first home run this season and Jake Marisnick also homered.

Beltran's shot came with one out and the first inning off Matt Shoemaker (0-1), and Marisnick's second homer this season made it 2-0 in the fifth.
