  • Red Sox LHP Rodriguez goes on paternity leave

When accounting for those unearned runs, the 17 runs that Red Sox pitchers have allowed in the first inning ties them with Washington for the most in the majors.

Toronto starter Marcus Stroman (1-2) gave up three straight one-out singles in the third inning and all three runners came around to score. Kevin Pillar, who doubled three times in a game for the first time in his career, said while there is time for the Blue Jays to turn things around, it has to start soon. After that terrible first, it could've been very easy for Johnson to allow that second inning to get away from him. "Guys went in there confident today and you could see it by their swings". But with starter Rick Porcello throwing his sharpest sinker in four starts, the Red Sox needed their infielders to vacuum ground balls, and the miscues by Sandoval and usually sure-handed first baseman Mitch Moreland proved costly. Ezequiel Carrera, pinch hitting for Darwin Barney, hit a home run to make the score 8-7. Morales has had the normal struggles against the ace, hitting just.200/.231/.480 over 26 plate appearances, but he does have two home runs, which is of some comfort.

The shutout was Toronto's first of the season.

"Well, I'm concerned", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after the game Sunday. "That's what it takes sometimes".

Porcello rebounded from a rough third inning to give the Red Sox seven innings, finishing his 110-pitch outing by allowing just the three runs on six hits. You know. Like I said my guys and view Roush Fenway I think all the way you can construct album offices taper off base. He missed time past year with anxiety.

Boston left-hander Brian Johnson (1-0) got the start after being called up from triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day and the Blue Jays made him work early with a 35-pitch first inning. Neither of those pitchers is scheduled to throw in this series, but with a three-game set to follow, it's going to be important that Liriano and Estrada go deep in games to give the bullpen as much rest as possible. The defence played really well behind me. With the Red Sox likely to stack the lineup with righties, it'll be important to see how Liriano is commanding the fastball low and away, and the slider low and in. Betts drove in Xander Bogaerts and Moreland's two-run single brought home Betts and Andrew Benintendi. They were just balls that found holes.

Biagini, Jason Grilli and closer Roberto Osuna combined for 3 2/3 runless innings as the Blue Jays snapped a two-game losing skid. After all, he's hitting.356 and has yet to strike out over the course of 50 plate appearances; in fact, he last struck out way back on September 12 of last season. "To being hit in the head four years ago, to the recent one, I think it says a lot about the resiliency and the competitiveness that is there right now". He did allow another baserunner on Pillar's third single of the day, and the Jays center field made it two third on a couple of swiped bags. The next step was supposed to be throwing to live hitters, but Boston has made a decision to have the southpaw throw another bullpen first.

Rodriguez is with his wife tending to the birth of a new baby boy. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. Just don't expect any clarity to come out of this night.

The 24-year-old Rodriguez has recorded a 5.23 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 30.2 strikeout percentage through 10 1/3 innings so far in his third year in the majors.

BLUE JAYS KEY TRENDS: The Blue Jays are now 3-15 in their last 18 games overall and 1-7 in their last eight home games.
