Blue Jays Get To E-Rod, Sox 3-2 [VIDEO]
That two game lead in the AL East for the Red Sox is now down to one game. A nail-biter 3-2 for the Jays over the Sox Saturday afternoon.
Eduardo Rodriguez pitched well for Boston but Toronto's J.A. Happ pitched better.
E-Rod pitched six innings. He gave up a 2-run homer to Melvin Upton Jr. and a bloop RBI hit to Jose Bautista for the Blue Jays three runs. One run was unearned.
The Sox runs came on a Dustin Pedroia home run and a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez. Boston had only seven hits all day.
So, the three game series is tied 1-1 with a Sunday afternoon game next.
Here's a look at the AL East race...
Boston 79 62 -
Toronto 78 63 1
Baltimore 76 64 2.5
New York 75 65 3.5
