Rafael Devers continued his torrid pace against the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

With his three-run bomb in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Boston Red Sox third baseman tied Gary Sheffield for the most RBIs against a single team in one season since 2005. The 22-year-old's home run off right-hander Thomas Pannone gave him 28 runs driven in against the Blue Jays this year, tying Sheffield's mark versus the Baltimore Orioles, according to Sportsnet Stats.

Here's a look at his run of dominance against Toronto in 2019:

Notching nine total RBIs over the four-game series, Devers also surpassed Red Sox legend David Ortiz for most RBIs in a single season against the Blue Jays.

Devers is enjoying a breakout campaign, slashing .326/.380/.558 with 19 home runs over 93 games. He'll have a chance to pass Sheffield when the Red Sox travel to Toronto for a three-game set Sept. 10-12.
