Xander Bogaerts (pictured) belted a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the tenth inning as the Red Sox rallied for a 6-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon. The win came one day after Boston's ten-game winning streak was ended.
Boston had taken a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning on a solo home run by J.D. Martinez, his 29th of the season.
The score stayed that way until the seventh when Toronto scored a pair of runs off the Red Sox bullpen after starting pitching Eduardo Rodriguez left the game with an ankle sprain.
Bogaerts' grand slam, his third of the season came on a 2-0 pitch with one out in the bottom of the tenth.
Rodriguez went 5.1 innings for the no-decision. He shut out Toronto on four hits while striking out five. The win went to Craig Kimbrel.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
