Red Sox down the Blue Jays

Estrada is just one of the Toronto starters who have struggled this season.

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays square off in the rubber match of their three game AL East division set from Rogers Centre in Major League Baseball action on Sunday afternoon.

"It feels like it's usually a home run that kinda kills it for me", Estrada said. Things are usually going OK and the next thing I know I get two guys on and the next guy hits a ball well and it just gets out. "Today, same thing. If it wasn't for that homer, who knows?" The Red Sox will give the start to 29-year old left-hander Drew Pomeranz, and the Blue Jays will hand the ball to 27-year old right-hander Joe Biagini.

Estrada (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked three.

Joe Biagini walked in Mitch Moreland in a 10-pitch, 6-minute at-bat in the third, giving the Red Sox a 3-0 lead.

The American League East championship flag from that run will fly forever, but with each passing year that season gets buried deeper into the collective memory.

The Red Sox got all the runs they needed in the third inning.

"I don't understand why everybody doesn't wear this thing, it's really comfortable", he said, as he stood by his locker this week, wearing his prized Blue Jays robe, customized with his name and number on the back.

"He's not happy with the outing, but for me, changing his speed, using his breaking ball, using that elevated fastball, that was good to see", Cora said.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he had no problem with third base coach Luis Rivera's decision to send Solarte.

The Englishman is well loved by the club's supporters but his class doesn't impress many others who perhaps don't watch him on a regular basis.

"I thought he was pretty solid", he said. In Toronto's last 10 games, only twice has a starter gone six: Estrada and Estrada. "Just to have that velocity separation and to be able to get that strike - not a lot of guys want to swing at that 0-0 curveball".

Sanchez started for Toronto, allowing three runs - two of them earned - and five hits over five innings. Pomeranz is still trying to find his groove, but Boston is still one of the best teams in the AL and given the pitching advantage, a line this low is too good to pass up so I'll lay the juice with Boston to win the set here. "I've always played video games, played it with my teammates in the offseason, at the field, at the hotel".

Sam Gaviglio (1-0), called up from triple-A Buffalo earlier in the day, pitched the top of the 10th, 11th and 12th innings for the win.

Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts combined for a ideal relay from left field to throw out Yangervis Solarte, who represented the game-tying run, at home plate to end the seventh inning.

With one out, Mookie Betts doubled and scored when the following batter, Andrew Benintendi, hit a ground-rule double. Bogaerts scored on Devers's RBI single for a 4-1 edge. In his career, Biagini is 1-3 with a 6.48 ERA and 25 strikeouts against Boston.

"Hopefully it's the first of many", Alford said of his first RBI. "I think we will get better".

Maile also tied the game with his first homer of the season against Chris Sale in the seventh inning and had a RBI single in the second for a three-hit, four-RBI game.

Benintendi hit his second RBI single off reliever Ryan Tepera in the ninth.

Saturday's ballgame was tiresome for Blue Jays fans.

Price (3-4) skipped Wednesday's start against the Yankees after experiencing numbness during a bullpen session last Sunday. Including Saturday, the Red Sox bullpen has thrown 8 2/3 scoreless frames and didn't walk a single batter.
