Blue Jays stumped by Sale in loss to Red Sox

Jays reliever Tim Mayza gets the hook from manager John Gibbons in a four-run Red Sox eighth at the Rogers Centre

Dylan Bundy threw a one-hitter for his first career shutout, Manny Machado hit two of Baltimore's four solo homers, and Baltimore extended its winning streak to six games with a victory over Seattle. Boston went on to win 6-5. "And for the most part I did that".

Ramirez singled off Danny Barnes (2-5) to begin the seventh and Vazquez followed by homering on an 0-2 pitch.

Up 3-2 in the sixth inning, Pillar's catch was a vitally important one at that moment in the game. Kevin Pillar also had an eighth-inning single against the left-hander.

Sale reached 1,500 strikeouts in 1,290 innings.

Note - Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (14-6, 2.88) has not allowed a run in 15 IP against Toronto this season, recording 24 strikeouts and just two walks. Pedro Martinez holds the Red Sox record with 313.

Toronto lost for the eighth time in 10 games and dropped to 1-6 at home against the Red Sox.

Jonathan Schoop and Welington Castillo also went deep for the Orioles, who moved two games over.500 for the first time since June 10. To do that, it's cool.

"He's swinging the bat really well", Farrell said.


Hanley Ramirez hit his team-leading 20th homer of the season for the AL East-leading Red Sox (75-57). Benintendi hit an RBI single to right.

Trainer's Room - Red Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia (left knee) ran on the field and is expected to run the bases Wednesday.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a flawless ninth, with two strikeouts, to earn his 31st save of the season.

While the Toronto Blue Jays continue to try to catch lightning in a bottle with their rotation on Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox will send out pure electricity on the mound.

Anderson pitched just 22 innings with the Cubs this year, racking up an 8.18 earned-run average before being released earlier this month. He'd make shot stops in San Francisco and Chicago before signing a minor league deal with Washington.

After Morales doubled in the second, Sale and Anderson combined to retire 22 consecutive batters before Boston's Rajai Davis hit a two-out single in the sixth. Anderson is the club-record 14th starting pitcher used by the Blue Jays this season. "He works fast, good stuff, his stuff's good".

Ramirez doubled Boston's lead in the seventh, sending a 1-2 fastball from reliever Dominic Leone over the centre-field wall and Benintendi drove in Davis with a single off Ryan Tepera in the eighth.
