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.

Mookie Betts had three hits, raising his average to .362.
