Turning to some baseball action now.
In the major league, the Blue Jays annihilate the Red Sox, 8-zip.
It was sweet vengeance for Toronto's monster lefty a month after getting knocked around by Boston.
On April 20th, he gave up four runs on a season-worst eight hits in five innings.
This time, Ryu Hyun-jin threw seven shutout innings at TD Ballpark in Florida.
The South Korean superstar improved to 4-2 for the season and lowered his ERA from 2-95 to 2-51.
He allowed only four hits and struck out seven to match his season high.
Ryu is the only Blue Jays starter to go at least seven innings this season, and he's done it three times.
Toronto improved to 23-17, trailing just half a game behind the American League East division leader Boston.
