The Toronto Blue Jays went into Fenway Park this weekend and completely and utterly dismantled the Boston Red Sox on their home diamond.
It began with a 28-5 obliteration on Friday night, but the Blue Jays kept their foot on the pedal after that victory and took it straight to the Sox in the next two games, pulling off a sweep and completing it on the exact day that Red Sox legend David Ortiz was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Blue Jays insider Keegan Matheson provided some stats on Twitter that show just how bad Toronto beat the Red Sox.
The #BlueJays sweep the Red Sox at Fenway by a combined score of 40-8.
This is the best they've looked in 2022.

Blue Jays Destroy Red Sox In Weekend Series
When you outscore a team 40-8 in a three-game series, that means you were clicking on all cylinders while the other team was just flat.
But the Jays really put the smackdown on their AL East rivals this weekend.
There really aren’t any positives you can take away from it if you’re a Red Sox fan.
The Blue Jays have been hot since the firing of their manager Charlie Montoyo, and as Matheson alluded to, this might be the best the team has looked all season.
Everything went perfectly for Toronto over the weekend as they swept the series and ran their win streak up to six games, padding their lead in the AL Wild Card race.
And things may just be getting started for the Blue Jays.
If this weekend in Boston was any indication, the Blue Jays are in for a wild ride for the remainder of the season.
