This Time Jays Beat Sox In Extra Innings
This time it was the Toronto Blue Jays with a 4-3 extra innings win, just 24 hours after the Red Sox had won in extras. Brett Lawrie got the game winning hit in the 10th.
The Sox had a ninth inning comeback when Mike Napoli broke out of his slump with a game-tying home run.
But in the bottom of the 10th, Lawrie’s hit through a drawn in Sox infield scored Rajai Davis and the Jays had the 4-3 win.
Brandon Workman took the loss. Jon Lester pitched 6 1/3 innings giving up three runs. He got a no decision.
The Sox loss, coupled with a Tampa Bay win, means the Sox lead is back down to three games.
