JD Martinez Lifts Red Sox Past Blue Jays

Seattle Mariners’ Kyle Seager right celebrates with Jean Segura after hitting a grand slam off Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher J.A. Happ during the first inning

Updates with Yankees beating Oakland.

It had blown a 6-5 lead against the Yankees in the eighth inning on Wednesday and then almost blew a 4-0 lead in the seventh inning on Thursday, but with the way the final two games of the series went against the Blue Jays, the bullpen appears to be gaining some confidence back. The Red Sox have feasted on Biagini, accumulating 18 runs on 30 hits in 25 innings.

Boston is 12-1 in series finales this season, winning its past six.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbooks now list the Red Sox as a -130 favorite.

"He's got a bunch of weapons with the curveball and the cutter, too, and he throws it all but you know his bread and butter is his fastball and changeup", said Betts. He was committed. He told me: 'I'm a better hitter than I was previous year, ' and he's always been great defensively. but he's got big hit after big hit.

"It's nice to go home, play in front of our own fans and sleep in our own beds", Martinez said.

Curtis Granderson started the 12th-inning rally with a leadoff walk off reliever Brian Johnson (1-2), his second extra-inning walk after coming into the game as a pinch hitter in the 10th. "On a daily basis you're expecting something great and he'll do it". Toronto is 11-11 at Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays have slowed up offensively as of late, however they are still averaging a solid 4.95 runs per game, ranking them seventh in the Majors.

He has allowed five runs over 12 innings in his past two starts, both of which were six innings.

Price pitched 5.1 innings and allowed just two runs on five hits and three walks, striking out six in his first start since skipping his last outing in NY due to a minor case of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Teenager arrested after classmate shot with rifle at high school
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies are responding to a report of a man with a gun at a high school in the city of Palmdale. The shooter was detained off campus by officers, at a Vons grocery store, near the school's premises, as reported by CNN .

Said Price: "I can't recall another time I've been on the mound with someone running out".

Velazquez (5-0) worked two scoreless innings.

After Kevin Pillar fouled out, Price was replaced by Carson Smith.

Even on a good day there was a twist of the weird for Price, as a spectator that ran onto the field and slid into second base before being tackled to the ground by security actually helped end his outing one batter early. He then scored when Andrew Benintendi hit a ground-rule double to left-center.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons had seen Urshela play and talked about his versatility. "But you can't lose sight of what you're trying to do". "Those kind of things happen".

Justin Smoak hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who have lost seven of 10 at home.

The red-hot Mookie Betts was 3-for-5 including a double in the third inning.

"We need to address that", Cora said. "We're going to keep working. We have to be 100 percent sure we make it". Biagini posted a weak 5.34 ERA in 119.2 innings with Toronto last season. RHP Carlos Ramirez was designated for assignment to make room for McGuire on the 40-man roster. Outfielder Dalton Pompey was returned to Buffalo on option. A corresponding move will be made before Toronto's next game, Tuesday at NY against the Mets.

The Boston Red Sox will look to win the series after evening up the set at one win apiece thanks to a 5-2 victory in game two on Saturday. LHP Sean Manaea (4-4, 2.11) starts for the Athletics. Biagini has made two spot starts for Toronto this season. LHP Jaime Garcia (2-2, 5.40) starts for the Blue Jays against RHP Noah Syndergaard (2-1, 3.09).
