It wasn't going to last forever. Young left-handed starter Eduardo Rodriguez was bound to have at least one bad outing in his career. It happened Sunday, as the powerful Blue Jays hammered him for nine earned runs in just 4.2 innings. His ERA ballooned from 0.38 at the end of three innings, to 3.55 at the end of his day. Toronto continued the barrage, winning 13-5. Boston's offense was keyed by David Ortiz (3R HR) and Dustin Pedroia (2-4, RBI)—but again, way too little, way too late.
