The Red Sox got another terrific outing from Jake Peavy but were unable to muster enough timely offense, losing 2-1 to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Peavy (pictured) pitched into the seventh inning which is when Toronto scored. Three hits and a sacrifice fly did the damage. He scattered five hits, struck out four and didn't walk a batter.

Boston got on the score board first on an RBI ground out by Jacoby Ellsbury that drove in Daniel Nava in the top of the fourth inning. The Red Sox had eleven hits including three-hit games by Dustin Pedroia and Nava, but they left a combined twenty runners on base.

The game closed out a 4-6 road trip for the Red Sox who face the suddenly resurgent Yankees over the weekend at Fenway Park.
