A quiet night offensively for the Red Sox - the team managed just four singles - added up to a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday night at Fenway Park.

Boston took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second on a Christian Vazquez RBI single. That lead help up until the seventh when Bo Bichette doubled in the tying run.

Toronto took a 2-1 lead in the eighth on am RBI ground out by Rowdy Tellez.

Zack Godley started and threw four shutout innings scattering three hits and walking a pair. The loss went to Marcus Walden.

Andrew Benintendi (pictured), who has struggled to find a rhythm in the early stages of this already-shortened 2020 season, was pulled for a pinch hitter in the fourth inning. He hit into a double play in his only plate appearance. Rafael Devers and J.D. Martinez continued their own offensive struggles going a combined 0-7 with Devers striking out twice.
