It was starting to look like another nightmarish loss in The Great White North. Then, Dustin Pedroia doubled in an 11th-inning lead run in Boston's 5-3 victory over the Jays. David Price again pitched to his contract, going 6 1/3 innings and yielding just two earned runs. In the absence of David Ortiz, Boston got multiple hits from The Laser Show, Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts (who extended his hitting streak to 22). A ramshackle bullpen did well—giving up just one earned run in 4 2/3 innings. On to Baltimore!
