The Boston Red Sox were on their way to a club record for April, but the Toronto Blue Jays were able to rally and prevent that from happening. 

Despite David Ortiz staying on that hot streak, the Blue Jays were able to pull off a 9-7 win at home. Ortiz hit his third home run in nine games on Tuesday night, he also had a big double that cleared the bases to give the Sox their first and only lead of the night. Ortiz is having a big return. Currently batting .500 and has a .513 on base percentage.

The Blue Jays were able to pound away at the surging Red Sox in the 7th and 8th innings to reclaim the lead. Edwin Encarnacion had a big night going 204 including a two run home run off John Lester in the 5th inning.

Boston finishes up April 18-8, and in first place in the AL East and the best record in the American League. The rival New York Yankees are right behind them by just two games, and it’s very early in the season. Can the Red Sox keep this momentum going?
