Final Score: Boston 5, Toronto 4
Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Josh Thole's fielding error at first base enabled the winning run to score with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Boston Red Sox edged the Toronto Blue Jays by a 5-4 count at Fenway Park.
Toronto had fought back from a 4-2 deficit to draw even on solo homers by Jose Reyes and Jose Bautista, with the latter coming off Red Sox closer Koji Uehara (1-0) with one out in the top of the ninth.
Brandon Snyder finished 2-for-4 and had a two-run double earlier for Boston, while Jonny Gomes and Ryan Lavarnway each contributed RBI doubles to help the Red Sox take three of four matchups from their AL East rival in the weekend set and prevail for the fourth time in five outings overall.
Bautista's game-tying blast capped a 3-for-5 day at the plate, with Colby Rasmus collecting two hits and an RBI for the Blue Jays.
Edwin Encarnacion and Rajai Davis both went 2-for-5 with a run scored in the loss, Toronto's fifth in seven outings on a seven-game road trip in which the team entered having ripped off 11 consecutive victories.
