The Red Sox have already won their series with Blue Jays in Toronto, after an 8-4 Saturday win at SkyDome (never to be called "Rogers Centre"). Boston overcame a so-so performance by Rick Porcello—who coughed up two 2-run HRs to Jose Bautista. Porcello ended up with the win—settling down (sort of) and going six innings. The Carmine Hose banged out 11 hits in yet another come-from-behind win. The Sox are averaging seven runs per game over the first four. Dustin Pedroia led the way with three hits and two RBIs, while Hanley Ramirez also knocked in two. Rusney Castillo made his first start of 2016 and collected two hits. Brock Holt went 1-5 and scored a run and is hitting .412 on the year. The bullpen once again came through with shining colors—Koji Uehara pitching a perfect seventh and Robbie Ross, Jr. delivering clean eighth and ninth innings.
