Shane Victorino's two-out single in the top of the eleventh inning scored Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jacoby Ellsbury to give the Red Sox a 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre.

Koji Uehara got the win in relief, the fourth pitcher used by Boston manager John Farrell.

The Blue Jays scored first on J.P. Arencibia's two-out RBI single in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Red Sox took the lead in the top of the seventh on RBI hits by Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia.

Toronto tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning on Arencibia's eighteenth home run of the season off reliever Junichi Tazawa.

Ryan Dempster (pictured) pitched very well for the Red Sox going seven innings. He allowed just one run on four hits. He walked two and struck out four.

Pedroia, David Ortiz, and Will Middlebrooks each had two hits for the Red Sox. Middlebrooks has five hits in twelve at bats since being recalled from Triple A Pawtucket.
