The Beatdown in Beantown

There’s a interesting thing about history – sometimes it doesn’t have a tendency to repeat itself.
In their 16 run romp over the Red Sox, the Blue Jays scored 16 runs at Fenway Park – just two less runs than their cumulative total during their entire six-game West Coast swing against the Angels and Athletics.
For an even crazier fact … in their 11 previous games against the Red Sox, the Blue Jays have scored 32 runs in total. They managed to match half that total in just one evening.
The Blue Jays could theoretically be shut out the rest of this series, but none of that will matter because there’s nothing better than beating the home team by 14 runs.
