Red Sox claim marathon contest against Blue Jays

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Napoli's three-run blast highlighted a seven-run 11th inning, as the Boston Red Sox outlasted the Toronto Blue Jays, 11-7, in the second test in a three-game series.

Allen Craig hit a two-run shot in the deciding frame for the Red Sox, who won in extra innings for the second consecutive night to put an eight-game slide further into the rear view. Dustin Pedroia finished with two hits including an early two-run homer, four RBI and two runs scored.

Junichi Tazawa (3-3) tossed a scoreless 10th frame to notch the victory.

Dioner Navarro drove in two, while Jose Bautista homered and Munenori Kawasaki ended up with three hits and an RBI for the Blue Jays, who have played four straight extra-inning games and fell to 1-3 in those contests.

Casey Janssen (3-2) was charged with four runs -- three earned -- on two hits over his inning-plus relief stint.
