Red Sox 6, Blue Jays 5: Alex Verdugo Starts the Fire

The Boston Red Sox took on the Toronto Blue Jays on a beautiful day at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox were looking to continue their winning ways, while the Blue Jays were hoping to bounce back from a tough loss the night before.

It was the Red Sox who struck first, with outfielder Alex Verdugo hitting a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning.

The Blue Jays responded quickly, scoring two runs in the top of the second to take the lead.

The Red Sox would not be deterred, however, as they battled back to tie the game in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Verdugo was once again instrumental in the comeback, hitting a double and scoring on a single by Xander Bogaerts.

The game remained tied until the bottom of the seventh inning, when Verdugo once again stepped up to the plate.

The Blue Jays refused to go quietly, however, and mounted a comeback of their own in the top of the ninth inning.
