BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Red Sox are 80-and-34--their most victories ever through 114 games--and they hold a seven-and-a-half-game lead on the rest of baseball. They've won 24 of 29 - the latest a 10-7 survival in 10 last night in Toronto.
Marcus Stroman limited the Sox to two hits and a run over seven, but J-D Martinez, Mitch Moreland, and Jackie Bradley Junior homered to slug Boston to its fifth straight W. Mookie Betts said his group's offense is relentless.
"It's just us continuing to push," he said. "We don't give up at-bats, we never make it easy for our opponents, and that's kind of how we're playing the way we're playing."

The series continues tonight at 7:07 p.m. Brian Johnson will oppose Mike Hauschild.
Johnson's 2-0 with a 3.94 ERA in three career starts north of the border. He struck out a career-high 11 over five innings last Thursday versus the Yankees.
Hauschild made his Blue Jays debut that same day and picked up his first win with six shutout frames of relief against Seattle. The righty's only appeared in five big league games.
Rafael Devers is expected to be activated from the disabled list. Boston's 11-and-3 in the season-series.
