Red Sox lead­off hit­ter Mookie Betts had his way with the Blue Jays in a three­game sweep at the Rogers Cen­tre from June 30 to July 2, in­clud­ing a ca­reer-high eight-RBI per­for­mance in the fi­nale. Jose Bautista home­red in Sun­day’s win in Detroit and was slash­ing .278/.404/.417 since tak­ing over at the top of Toronto’s lineup in late June. NEED TO KNOW Bos­ton cut ties with third base­man

Joe Bi­agini could take his place.
