Clay Buchholz (pictured) deserved better; he turned in his best performance in what seemed like forever going 6.2 innings, shutting down the Blue Jays on six hits. He struck out two and walked a pair. The Red Sox defense helped - four double plays and an outstanding catch in center by Jackie Bradley Jr.
Toronto tied the score in the eighth with the help of an error and a passed ball and took the lead on a two-out, bases-loaded walk allowed by Craig Kimbrel. Russell Martin then drove in two more runs with a single to center off Kimbrel.
Boston was held to just four hits over seven innings by Toronto starting pitcher J.A. Happ who allowed just one run, an RBI double by Josh Rutledge in the bottom of the second that scored Hanley Ramirez.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
