LEADING OFF: Red Sox on a roll, Syndergaard returns
A look at what’s happening around the majors on Friday:
Mookie Betts and the rolling Boston Red Sox try to win their 11th consecutive game when they host Toronto again at Fenway Park. Betts, who leads the majors with a .352 batting average, had a grand slam and five RBIs in Thursday night’s 6-4 victory. Boston owns the longest current winning streak in the big leagues and hasn’t lost since getting routed July 1 at Yankee Stadium.
