Recap - "Little League home run" helps down Sox

Two words for Red Sox fans this morning - Rajai Davis.

Davis scored the winning run for the Blue Jays in the bottom of the tenth inning on a Brett Lawrie single to hand Boston a 4-3 loss. But it was what happened during a Davis at bat seven innings earlier that gave you the feeling this one wasn't going to go well for the Sox.

You see it happen all the time in youth recreation-level games; you don't expect to see it at the Major League level. With the game still scoreless in the bottom of the third inning, Davis hit a ball back to the mound where Jon Lester threw the ball past first baseman Mike Napoli. Right fielder Shane Victorino's throw to third hit Davis and ricocheted into foul territory allowing him to sprint home with Toronto's first run.

Lester (pictured) allowed three runs over six innings. Five of the six hits he gave up were doubles; he walked two and struck out three.

David Ortiz and Mike Napoli both homered for the Red Sox. Napoli's solo blast came with two outs and tied the game in the top of the ninth inning. Jarrod Saltalamacchia had two hits for Boston.
