Jose Can Clearly See; Red Sox Fall To Jays, 6-2

Jose Bautista can sometimes take an entire team on his back and win a game single-handedly. Such is the enormity of his talent. He did just that on Saturday, clouting two HRs and driving in three to push the Blue Jays over Boston, 6-2. On top of his offensive fireworks, Bautista fired a 260-foot pea to home to cut down Shane Victorino at the plate in the sixth inning. Boston tied the score at two apiece in the seventh, but Toronto pushed across two runs each in the eighth and ninth to seal the deal. Once again, Felix Doubront pitched well—going six innings and giving up just two earned runs. Four different Red Sox players had two hits (Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Victorino, Dustin Pedroia, Jarrod Saltalamacchia). Jose Iglesias notched another hit—now hitting .414.
