A recap of last night's Toronto/Boston Game One.
There is no other way to say it.

The Toronto Blue Jays were crushed 13-4 by the Boston Red Sox last night.

The Jays didn't even have a chance.

Toronto was out of it in the first inning.

The Red Sox scored eight runs in the top of the first inning.

Hunter Renfroe hit a grand slam in the first to put Boston ahead 6-0.

After the grand slam, Jay's staring pitcher, Ross Stripling was pulled from the game. He lasted just 0.1 innings.

"He, (Stripling) wasn't as sharp that he has been," said Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo at the postgame press conference.

Despite being trounced, Montoyo said he was still happy with his team's performance last night.

Jarren Duran and Enrique Hernandez also hit home runs in the first inning.

Hernandez hit a solo home run at the top of the sixth inning.

At the top of the second inning, Rafael Devers hit a solo home run.

Boston's J.D. Martinez went four for four at the plate.

Renfroe had four RBIs and Danny Santana had three RBIs for Boston.

Toronto's Cavan Biggio hit a home run in the bottom of sixth inning.

The positive thing for Toronto last night is that George Springer went three for four at the plate, but that was it.

Toronto hopes to redeem themselves tonight
