Sox Fall Again To Stroman; Beaten By Jays, 4-2

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons put it well, "The kid's good". The 'kid' in question is Toronto starter Marcus Stroman—who has shut down the Red Sox twice in the last five days. Boston managed a two-out RBI double by Dustin Pedroia and a 9th inning HR by Xander Bogaerts to account for its two measly runs in a 4-2 loss. Rubby De La Rosa managed to survive through six decent innings—despite being pummelled for nine hits. Of course, the game itself—despite being a pretty decent contest—took 'second fiddle' to the soon-to-be trade of ace Jon Lester.
