Red Sox 14 @ Blue Jays 1

The Blue Jays were successful in scoring one run against the Red Sox In the third, Erik Kratz and Juan Francisco hit back-to-back doubles to start the inning against John Lackey. And the Blue Jays got three times as many hits as they had runs!

Meanwhile, the Red Sox were just able to score two touchdowns, getting seven fewer points than they needed to reach Blackjack. And starting pitcher John Lackey threw 18 balls! 18! The Blue Jays chased Lackey after seven innings pitched. Relievers Rob Rasmussen and Todd Redmond threw a combined 4.1 scoreless innings and gave up just two hits and struck out four, walking none. Darin Mastroianni ended the Red Sox's last inning with a pretty fine sliding catch.

Some kids forced a few smiles in the ninth when the Sportsnet cameras were pointed at them.

The Rogers Centre remained structurally sound.

The weather was really nice.

I didn't watch the game.

We're still alive.

Yay positivity!
