  • BC-BBA--Red Sox-Blue Jays

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 okay, and the next thing I know I get two guys on, the next guy hits a ball well and it gets out, and it ruins everything. Today, same thing. If it wasn't for that homer, who knows?"

Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz didn't have his best stuff on Sunday, as he couldn't record an out in the fifth inning.

Estrada (2-3) worked through six innings, allowing four runs to the visitors in the process, but the Jays bats couldn't pick him up and the result was a 5-2 loss. He struck out four and walked three.

Red Sox: Boston returns home Monday to begin a three-game series against Oakland.

The Boston Red Sox will look to win the series after evening up the set at one win apiece thanks to a 5-2 victory in game two on Saturday.

"I made a decent pitch to Betts and he kind of hooked it down the line", a frustrated Estrada said.

"But other than that, I threw the ball pretty well today".

"I just gotta keep working hard and trying to get better, try to locate my pitches a little more, that's all I can really do".

Marco Estrada has this signature thing, a quirk maybe, where he brings his hands to his mug in the start position and peers in over top the glove before beginning his delivery.

Manager John Gibbons shared a similar sentiment. He allowed six runs and 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings in the second game of a doubleheader at Cleveland on May 3.

Price (3-4) allowed two runs, five hits and three walks and struck out six in 5 1/3 innings for his first win since April 17, a span of three winless starts.

Martinez got to Biagini early taking the right-hander's first pitch fastball over the wall in right field for a two-run home run, his 10th of the season, in the first.

"That's big, just to have that velocity separation, to be able to throw it 0-0 and get that strike", Price said. Maybe most of the issues had to do with the Yankees lineup just being very good, opposed to being totally on the Red Sox relievers. "To me, that's always a good sign". He was pulled in the fifth and relieved by Hector Velazquez, who pitched two scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 2.10.

The red-hot Mookie Betts was 3-for-5 including a double in the third inning. Bogaerts scored on Devers's RBI single for a 4-1 edge. He was optioned to Triple-A after the start and was recalled to face the Red Sox.

"Hopefully it's the first of many", Alford said of his first RBI. I told [first base coach Tim] Leiper I didn't think my first hit was going to ever come here.

With Craig Kimbrel unavailable after pitching in three of the last four games, it was Joe Kelly who got the save chance and he converted it quickly, needing just four pitches to get three outs. He then scored when Andrew Benintendi hit a ground-rule double to left-center.

Before the game, the Blue Jays added infielder Gio Urshela to the 25-man roster.

Otherwise, he's been just as hot as he was when he led the Arizona Diamondbacks to a playoff appearance after a midseason trade previous year.

Catcher Luke Maile, the walk-off hero in a 12-inning win over the Red Sox Friday night, had four strikeouts Saturday.
