The Red Sox rallied for two runs in the top of the eleventh inning to beat the Blue Jays 5-3 at Rogers Centre. The win snapped a Boston three-game losing streak.

Clay Buchholz was the winner in relief with a scoreless tenth inning (honest!); Koji Uehara got the save, his first of the year.

Dustin Pedroia's ground rule double scored Blake Swihart; Mookie Betts scored on an RBI ground out by Xander Bogaerts (pictured) for the difference in the game.

The Red Sox got 6.1 innings of two-run pitching from David Price. He allowed five hits and three walks while striking out three.

Toronto broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fifth inning when Joe Bautista launched his eleventh home run of the year with a man aboard.

After being no-hit by R.A. Dickey through the first five innings, Boston rallied for three in the top of the sixth. Pedroia drove in a run with a single; Hanley Ramirez was hit with a pitch with the bases loaded to drive another, and Jackie Bradley Jr. drew a bases-loaded walk to drive in the third Red Sox run of the inning.

Bogaerts extended his hitting streak to 22 straight games.
