Martinez powers Red Sox past Blue Jays

Martinez powers Red Sox past Blue Jays

One bad - as in godawful - inning has been rather a motif for the Toronto starters, an ailment that has latterly infected J.A. Happ too and he'd been their most reliable man on the hill.

Saturday was more of the same story.

Martinez had key hits in four of the six wins this road trip, and the argument could be made that he single-handedly led the Red Sox to a victory in two of the games; he hit a go-ahead homer late in the Sox' 5-4 win over the Yankees on Thursday and he was 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the win on Sunday.

"I feel like it's usually a home run that just kind of kills everything for me", Estrada said. Things are usually going OK and the next thing I know I get two guys on and the next guy hits a ball well and it just gets out. "Today, same thing. If it wasn't for that homer, who knows?"

Drew Pomeranz limited the Yankees to two runs over six frames Tuesday in a no-decision.

Sanchez thought he had the third out when he got Sandy Leon fishing on a low ball for strike three with Brock Holt positioned at first. Jackie Bradley Jr. started the inning with a walk and went to third on a single by Mookie Betts.

The Blue Jays are 3-13 in Biagini's last 16 starts and are 1-7 in his last eight outings when he faces the rest of the American League East.

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.

"I thought I threw the ball pretty well today and wish it could have gone different, but it didn't".

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.

"It was good to get back out there", Price said.

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. "We didn't swing at a whole lot of balls".

Boston starting pitcher David Price allowed two runs on five hits during five-and-one-third innings against the Blue Jays. Not the Price who was a prince of mastery in his molten summer as a Jay three years back.

"Disappointing for me to be on the wrong end of it, but try to do the best as you can".

Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel struck out two in the ninth to earn his eleventh save of the 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.

Jays third baseman Russell Martin tags out Boston's Christian Vazquez on a steal attempt during the seventh inning. The Jays got their other run on an Anthony Alford RBI single, his first career major league RBI. "It was my first hit in the dome". After he hit it, I didn't think it was going to go out but it did. "I look forward to it every time I get the ball here".

Price made just one more mistake in the sixth, when he came inside with a fastball to Justin Smoak and watched it sail over the left-field wall for a solo shot.

Blue Jays: Toronto added INF Gio Urshela to its roster and optioned OF Dalton Pompey to Triple-A Buffalo. Price made six home starts for the Blue Jays in 2015 after being acquired from Detroit at the trade deadline.

Red Sox: LHP Drew Pomeranz (1-1, 5.23) went 3-1 in four starts against Toronto past year.
