Jose Batista proved to be the difference as the Red Sox fell to the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2 at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon. Batista went deep twice - once off Boston starter Felix Doubront in the top of the sixth inning, and once off Junichi Tazawa with a man on in the top of the eighth inning.

Both Red Sox runs came as the result of an RBI single by Shane Victorino (pictured) in the bottom of the seventh inning which tied the score at two apiece.

Doubront went 6.1 innings, charged with two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six. Tazawa, the losing pitcher of record, and Craig Breslow each allowed two runs.

The Red Sox had another double-digit hit game with ten; Jacoby Ellsbury, Victorino, Dustin Pedroia, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each had two.

Thw loss snapped the Red Sox winning streak at four. They go for the series win Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park with Ryan Dempster on the mound.
