Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Brett Lawrie singled in the winning run in the
10th inning to boost the Toronto Blue Jays to a 4-3 win over the Boston Red
Boston's Mike Napoli tied the game with a two-run homer with two outs in the
top of the ninth inning, but the Red Sox were not able to capitalize with the
bases full later in the frame.
The Red Sox wasted a chance with two men on base in the 10th, and in the
bottom half Rajai Davis doubled to center and went to third on a groundout.
Following an intentional walk to Edwin Encarnacion, Lawrie hit a hot smash
that caromed off shortstop Stephen Drew and into the outfield.
Davis had three hits and two runs scored for the Blue Jays, who snapped a
three-game skid. Encarnacion had a pair of doubles and scored twice.
David Ortiz homered for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who lost for the fourth
time in six games.
Esmil Rogers threw six strong innings for the Blue Jays, while Jon Lester
lasted one out into the seventh for the Red Sox.
Brad Lincoln (1-1) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win, while Brandon Workman
(3-2) suffered the loss after working the final three frames.
