Lawrie Has Winning Hit, Blue Jays Beat Red Sox
Brett Lawrie singled home the winning run in the 10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Boston 4-3 on Wednesday, handing the AL East-leading Red Sox their fourth loss in six games.
Rajai Davis doubled off Brandon Workman (3-2) to begin the 10th and went to third on Jose Bautista’s grounder. Edwin Encarnacion was intentionally walked to bring up Lawrie, who lined a two-strike pitch off the glove of shortstop Stephen Drew, bringing Davis home with the winning run.
Brad Lincoln (1-1) worked 1 1-3 innings as the Blue Jays recovered to win after Boston’s Mike Napoli hit a game-tying, two-run homer with two outs in the ninth.
David Ortiz also added a solo blast in the sixth, his 23rd.
