Mookie Betts, JD Martinez power Red Sox again

  • Dominating effort by Chris Sales goes unrewarded

His command was mostly sharp until the fourth inning, when he walked two batters and gave up a two-out RBI single to Anthony Alford. Hanley Ramirez then knocked a four-seamer over the wall in left to open a 3-0 edge.

The Red Sox would seem to have a decided advantage in the rubber match.

The Blue Jays chased left-hander Drew Pomeranz during a three-run fifth.

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.

"He's got a bunch of weapons with the curveball and the cutter, too, and he throws it all but you know his bread and butter is his fastball and changeup", said Betts.

Sanchez started for Toronto, allowing three runs - two of them earned - and five hits over five innings.

TORONTO (AP) - J.D. Martinez and the Boston Red Sox wrapped up their longest road trip of the season so far the same way they've finished off nearly every series: with a win. Price made six home starts for the Blue Jays in 2015 after being acquired from Detroit at the trade deadline. "I enjoy the mound, the atmosphere".

A Justin Smoak solo shot to right field in the sixth inning left the bat at 97.5 m.p.h. "I look forward to it every time I get the ball here".

If the error was his dumbest play, the extra-inning home run - marking his first career multi-homer game - topped Maile's list of best moments.

It had blown a 6-5 lead against the Yankees in the eighth inning on Wednesday and then almost blew a 4-0 lead in the seventh inning on Thursday, but with the way the final two games of the series went against the Blue Jays, the bullpen appears to be gaining some confidence back. Craig Kimbrel pitched a flawless ninth inning for his 11th save.

With one out in the inning, a fan ran onto the field and caused a delay of about five minutes. After police and security staff escorted the fan out the gate in right field, Cora came out to make the change.

Said manager Alex Cora, "I saw something different in the way he pitched today". He'll try to keep it going on Sunday in Toronto.

Johnson enjoys best ever Players round
Mitchell was the last player in the field, gaining entry on Wednesday when England's Paul Casey withdrew due to a back injury. That's been the story of the TPC Sawgrass over the years - a design that doesn't favor one particular style of play.

Boston has scored five or more runs an ML-leading 24 times this season.

While the Red Sox bullpen has been questionable and the starting pitching has taken a step back after a hot start, the Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-3, on Sunday to complete a hard road trip with a 6-4 record thanks largely to two people: Mookie Betts and Martinez. Normally a catcher, Martin made his second start at third base in four days, while Josh Donaldson was the DH.

Blue Jays: RHP Joe Biagini (0-1, 8.10) is expected to start in place of injured RHP Marcus Stroman (right shoulder).

It's Pomeranz's best outing so far this season and his arrow is pointing up with two straight quality starts following a couple clunkers.

Boston is 26-11 in their last 37 games overall and 15-6 in Pomeranz's last 21 division starts while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games.
