Pomeranz (pictured) had some control issues, walking five while striking out three, but was helped out by three double plays as he picked up his 10th win of the year. His ERA is down to 3.51. and is 2.62 over his last twelve starts.

The Red Sox jumped on Toronto starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez for four runs in the bottom of the second on two-RBI singles by Deven Marrero and Pedroia. They made it 5-0 two innings later on another run-scoring single by Pedroia.

Toronto's lone run came in the top of the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly by Jose Bautista.

Pedroia's streak of error-less games came to an end in the fifth inning at 114 games.
