The crowd chanted `Lets Go Mookie! before his final at-bat.For Betts, it was the right-fielders second three homer game of the season. He hit three against Baltimore on May 31.Jackie Bradley Jr. chipped in with a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who closed a six-game homestand at 4-2.What was billed as a marquee pitching matchup turned into a rout early when Zack Greinke (11-4) was tagged for three homers and nine runs in 1 2/3 innings.Porcello allowed one run on three hits over seven innings and became the first Boston pitcher since Dave Boo Ferriss to begin a year by winning his first 12 decisions in Fenway.Betts two-run homer in the first cleared the Green Monster and made it 2-0.His second -- a three-run shot into the first row of Monster seats -- keyed a seven-run second. Bradley hit his off the Pesky Pole, and rookie Andrew Benintendi and Pedroia each drove in a run during the inning.Betts third homer was a three-run shot that caromed off a billboard above the Monster in a six-run fifth.Michael Bourn had a solo homer and RBI single for the Diamondbacks.

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jered Weaver only regretted one pitch during his six innings against the Toronto Blue Jays.The way the Los Angeles Angels are playing this season, one pitch is all it takes to regret an entire night.Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer, R.A. Dickey pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning and Toronto stayed atop the AL wild-card chase with a 5-0 victory over the freefalling Angels on Friday night.Weaver (11-12) matched his career high for losses despite throwing seven-hit ball for Los Angeles, striking out four.But Tulowitzki connected in the fourth inning on that pitch from his fellow product of nearby Long Beach States prolific baseball program. The homer, Tulowitzkis second in September, was the 36th allowed by the slow-throwing Weaver this season, one shy of James Shields for most in the majors.My fastball command was really good all night, Weaver said. Its the best its been in a while. I was able to locate down and in all night. Just one stupid pitch, and thats the difference in the game.The Angels have lost five straight, scoring exactly four runs during that miserable stretch. Theyve lost nine of 10 overall to drop to 63-84 -- and the Angels would have to finish 12-3 to avoid the worst season of manager Mike Scioscias 17 years in charge.We didnt pressure those guys enough, Scioscia said. Weave threw one changeup to Tulowitzki that he might want back. Outside of that, he pitched a great game.Edwin Encarnacion added a late two-run homer for the Blue Jays (81-66), who stayed even with Baltimore for the leagues two wild cards. Both teams trail Boston by two games for the AL East lead with 15 to play.We look at it, of course, Dickey said. Thats part of a postseason run. Youre competing against teams in your division that are good. We know what we need to do to get where we want to get.Toronto has lost seven of 11 overall, but took the first two games of a weekend sseries -- the Jays first consecutive wins in September. http://www.authenticshoptitans.com/brian-orakpo-jersey/. Theyve won five straight games in Anaheim for the first time in the franchises 40 seasons.Hopefully, maybe this is the start of a little roll, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. It would be good timing if it was.Dickey (10-14) bolstered his case to keep a rotation spot by limiting the Angels to seven hits and striking out five. His first start since Sept. 5 began with a rough first inning before he settled in.MISSED CHANCESThe Angels chased Dickey and loaded the bases with nobody out in the sixth, but failed to score against Joe Biagini when Kaleb Cowart flied out to end the inning. Cowart also struck out to end the eighth, stranding two more Angels.Roberto Osuna got four outs for his 33rd save.ALBERTS 600THAlbert Pujols became the 16th player in big league history to get 600 career doubles with a drive into the left-field corner in the first inning. Pujols joined Barry Bonds and Hank Aaron as the only players with at least 575 homers and 600 doubles.FAN INJUREDA fan behind the Angels dugout was injured when Carlos Perezs bat went flying into the crowd as he swung and missed at a third strike in the second inning. Medical personnel spent several minutes attending to the fan, who was escorted from her seat with an injury on the right side of her head.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: Josh Donaldson was the designated hitter for the second straight game as he returns deliberately from a hip injury. Darwin Barney played third.UP NEXTBlue Jays: Francisco Liriano (7-12, 5.16 ERA) limited Tampa Bay to three hits and two runs in his last start.Angels: Ricky Nolasco (5-14, 4.94) has just one win since joining Los Angeles, but it was a shutout at Angel Stadium.
