Ezequiel Carrera's sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning drove in what proved to be the tying run as the Red Sox fell to Toronto 4-3 at Fenway Park Saturday night.

Craig Kimbrel's late-season problems continued. After imploding in the series finale against the Yankees Thursday night giving up a base hit and three walks, followed by a two-walk ninth inning Friday, he issued a one-out walk in the ninth last night and ultimately wild-pitched the runner to third before Carrera's sac fly drove him in.

With the loss, the Red Sox dropped a half-game behind Cleveland for the second seed in the American League playoffs.

Mookie Betts had two hits for Boston. Chris Young (pictured) singled home two runners in the bottom of the first to give the Red Sox an early 2-0 lead.

Eduardo Rodriquez started for Boston. He gave up three runs on three hits over five innings. He struck out nine but also walked five.
