The Blue Jays Scored 28 Runs Last Night

On June 26, 1978, the Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 24-10. That was the Blue Jays record for runs scored a game for almost 7,000 games. Last night, the Jays set a new franchise record by beating the Boston Red Sox 28-5.

Here are a few fun facts from this game:

  • Raimel Tapia hit an inside-the-park grand slam, the second in Blue Jays history (Junior Felix hit the first)
  • The Jays scored 11 runs in the fifth inning, tying the franchise record for runs in an inning
  • Lourdes Gurriel Jr. had six hits, tying the Blue Jays record (Frank Catalanotto)
  • Raimel Tapia and Daddy Jansen, with six RBIs each, became the first duo to reach that mark in Blue Jays history.
