And just like that, the Red Sox put the London Debacle in the rear view mirror, beating the Blue Jays 10-6 in Toronto on Thuesday night.

Devers (pictured) put Boston up 2-0 in the top of the first inning with his 13th home run of the year, driving in Mookie Betts in the process. Christian Vazquez and the suddenly red-hot Jackie Bradley Jr. each had RBI hits in the opening frame.
Boston put up 15 hits in the win, led by four from Devers and three from Vazquez.
Price scattered four hits over six innings, charged with two runs. He struck out seven and walked a pair in improving his record to 6-2.
And then we all prayed that the 8-2 lead the bullpen was handed going into the bottom of the seventh was enough.
Thankfully, the Boston pen held - well Trevor Kelley did allow three ninth-inning runs - while a few hundred miles to the south the Yankees were watching their own relief corps implode against the Mets thus allowing the Red Sox to pick up a game on New York.

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).
