'Weakest Ever Roster' Wins Second Straight, 3-2

The Canadian Press, Frank Gunn
Maybe Bobby V. should insult his players before every game. On Saturday, the Red Sox pulled off the rarest of rare feats in 2012—they won for the second straight time, 3-2 over the Blue Jays. The win allowed Boston to inch percentage points ahead of Toronto into fifth place—not exactly bragging rights, but something. Today, it was the amazing Pedro Ciriaco who nailed the game-winning two-out hit in the ninth inning scoring Salty. After falling behind yet again at the start, Cody Ross hit his 21st HR to tie the score at one. Clay Buchholz had another fine performance—going seven full innings and giving up just one earned run on only four hits.
