Recap - Sox rally late to beat Blue Jays

Given the way this season has gone, especially with the mess that is the bullpen, you have a pass if you turned the Red Sox game off at 6-1 at the end of the fourth inning.

The Blue Jays were already into the Boston relievers in the third inning and Colten Brewer wasn't giving anyone reason to feel optimistic.

Through five innings, the lone Red Sox his was a Rafael Devers solo home run in the top of the first.

And then the sixth inning happened.

The Red Sox scored SIX TIMES IN THE INNING with Michael Chavis's three-run homer (pictured) being the decisive blow as Boston rallied for an 8-7 win over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Toronto of course did tie the game in the bottom of the eighth - thank you, Brandon Workman for yet another blown save - but Marco Hernandez homered in the top of the ninth to give Boston the ultimate 8-7 win.

Workman pitched the ninth and though he walked a pair was the winning pitcher improving his record to 8-1, yet another shining example of why wins are a deceptive statistic when it comes to pitchers.

The Red Sox continue their road trip in Detroit Friday night with Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound.
