The Red Sox rallied for single runs in the 8th and 9th innings to beat the Blue Jays 6-5 at Fenway Park on Monday night. Mookie Betts (pictured) drove in Xander Bogaerts with the winning run on a single.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. A Red Sox starting pitcher gave up a bunch of runs and couldn't get into the 7th inning.

Joe Kelly was touched for 5 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks over 6 innings. Kelly struck out 10 in the losing effort.

Toronto scored 3 runs in the top of the 1st inning and single runs in the 3rd and 4th frames.

Boston answered with 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st inning on a Pablo Sandoval single that scored Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. Sandoval homered in the 4th and Pedroia drove in Mookie Betts with an RBI single in the 5th. Boston tied the game at 5 with a Hanley Ramirez sacrifice fly in the 8th.

Koji Uehara looked like Koji again with a 1-2-3 9th inning - including a pair of strikeouts - in picking up the win in relief.

Betts had 3 hits for Boston; Pedroia and Sandoval each had a pair. Sandoval left the game in the 6th inning with what was said to be a stiff neck.
