Eduardo Rodriguez started for Boston, allowing a pair of runs in the first inning on a Kendrys Morales double. Pearce increased the lead to 3-0 in the top of the second with a solo home run.

The Red Sox tied the game in the sixth. Brock Holt drove in Andrew Benintendi with a sacrifice fly, followed by an RBI single by Mookie Betts.

With two on and two out, Dustin Pedroia tied the game with a Wall Ball double, but Betts was thrown out trying to score what would have been the go-ahead run.

Toronto took the lead for good on Pearce's RBI single in the eighth.

Making his first start off the 10-day disabled list, Rodriguez (pictured) went 5.1 innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out eight but walked four.

Heath Hembree took the loss for Boston.
