The Red Sox scored four runs in the seventh and three more in the eighth to beat the Blue Jays 7-2 in come-from-behind fashion Tuesday night at Fenway Park. With the win, Boston became the first team to secure a playoff spot this year and moved another step closer to its third straight divisional title.

Chris Sale started and threw 25 pitches in a scoreless first inning. After being taken out - the plan all along was either two innings or 40 pitches, whichever came first - Sale finished his night's work with a bullpen session.
Toronto took a 2-0 lead in the top of the sixth inning on a throwing error by Ian Kinsler that allowed one to score and an RBI single by Kevin Pillar.
The Red Sox answered by in the seventh with a run-scoring triple by Steve Pearce and a three-run homer by Brock Holt (pictured) putting Boston up 4-2.

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).
