Jays Play Long Ball,Beat Sox 5-2 [VIDEO]
Junichi Tazawa has appeared in more games(63) than any other Red Sox pitcher and the question arises – is he worn out? Tazawa could not hold down the fort in the seventh inning and the Blue Jays beat the Sox 5-2.
Sox starter Joe Kelly deserved better. He pitched six innings of two run ball but was taken out after 86 pitches.
After Tommy Layne came in to give up a hit, Tazawa was brought in and he immediately gave up a home run to Danny Valencia. The Jays had a lead they would never give up.
The Sox settle for two wins in the three game series and move on to Tampa Bay for a weekend series that starts Friday night.
