The Toronto Blue Jays touched Boston starting pitcher Clay Buchholz for three runs in the top of the fourth inning, in beating the Red Sox 4-2 at Fenway Park. For Buchholz, it was his first loss of the season.
With the division title sewn up on Friday night, manager John Farrell unveiled a couple of new wrinkles with Will Middlebrooks starting at first base, John McDonald at second, and Stephen Drew leading off.
Buchholz went six innings, charged with three runs on six hits; he walked two and also struck out a pair.
The Red Sox runs came on an RBI single by Jonny Gomes in the sixth and an RBI ground out by David Ross.
The Oakland A's won, bringing them a little closer to the Red Sox for the best record in the American League.

Baseball players are known for strange injuries, from overexposure to tanning beds to random attacks by fans (that turned out to not really hold up) to trying to scare one’s own kids at Christmas. On Friday, Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus suffered an injury on the field (normal) after being hit by a ball (normal), in between innings simply running to his position (not normal...
The conclusion of the major league baseball season is all but a week away and another disappointing season north of the border. Rewind back 5 months earlier when the Toronto Blue Jays were the prognosticators overwhelming favorite in the American League East. The Jays were tabbed the World Series front-runner and the best betting experience money could buy in early April.
Here’s my attempt to sift through all the players that could be available via free agency or trade that could make sense for the Jays at second base for next year. All stats are from Baseball-Reference.com as I looked at Defensive Runs Saved (DRS) quite extensively and poked around with OPS+ too.
But first, let’s look at what Toronto has for internal options:
1) Ryan Goins –...
Last night during the middle of the first inning in a game between the Blue Jays and Red Sox, Anthony Gose threw a warm up throw Colby Rasmus’ way which hit him in the face apparently just below the eye. Rasmas collapsed to his knees and had to leave the game, was transported to hospital and received a CT scan, the results of which are still unknown.

The Toronto Blue Jays had their rookie initiation which saw outfielder Moises Sierra sport a spandex Ninja Turtle costume. Jose Reyes and company were getting in their laughs with the shortstop gave Sierra a slap on the behind for good measure.
The post Ninja Turtle Moises Sierra Get Slap In The Butt From Jose Reyes appeared first on Baseball Hot Corner.
Centre fielder Colby Rasmus left Friday’s game injured as he trotted out to centre field before the bottom of the first inning.
As he was going out to centre field after the Jays had gone in order in the top of the first Rasmus was hit in the left eye by a ball thrown by right fielder Anthony Gose 150 feet away and was removed from the game. Rasmus obviously did not see the ball...
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus left Friday night's game against the Boston Red Sox after he was hit in the face with a ball while jogging out to the field in the middle of the first inning.
Rasmus was replaced by Kevin Pillar in the lineup.

Mark Buehrle feels like good things happen when you stay out on the mound a lot.
The 34-year old left-hander threw six strong innings and reached the 200-inning plateau for a 13th straight season, carrying the Toronto Blue Jays to 4-2 win over the AL East-champion Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.
''It's one thing coming into the season that I set my goal at,'&...
The Toronto Blue Jays have made it harder for the New York Yankees to make the post season this year by winning two out of three games this past week. The Yankees practically have to win every game now to make the playoffs.
The Jays shut out the Yankees 2-0 in the first game. Rajai Davis went two for four at the plate and collected an RBI.
R.A. Dickey went seven innings, giving...
Jon Bones Jones is set to defend the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship against Alexander Gustafsson at Saturday’s aptly-named UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson in Toronto. To prepare, he’s visiting Canadian sporting events and beating up whoever he finds there. At Rogers Centre it was Toronto Blue Jays mascot Ace, and also maybe Alex Rodriguez.
Jones threw out the first pitch...
The always hilarious Sarah Silverman threw out the ceremonial first-pitch at Thursday’s New York Yankees-Toronto Blue Jays game. Silverman, who is in Toronto for a Comedy Festival, did her best non-Carly Rae Jepson imitation with the ball reaching the catcher’s mitt. Here’s Silverman with Leno back in 2012:
The Toronto Blue Jays are guaranteed to finish at the bottom of the AL East for the first time since John Gibbons began his initial managerial stint with the team nine years ago.
The Chicago White Sox have a slim chance to avoid finishing last for the first time in 29 seasons, and they'll send Jose Quintana to the mound against the visiting Blue Jays on Monday night in the makeup...
For the 13th consecutive season pitcher Mark Buehrle passed the 200-inning barrier Saturday night as the Blue Jays rallied around him for a 4-2 victory over the newly minted American League East Division champion Boston Red Sox.
Buehrle stifled the Red Sox on five hits over six innings allowing just one run. He got all the run support he needed in the form of a three-run two-out...
A handful of knuckleballs cost R.A. Dickey.
David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr. homered to lead the AL East champion Boston Red Sox to a 5-2 victory over the last-place Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday in the regular-season finale at Fenway Park.
''I threw really two or three that I regret, and two of them got hit out for home runs,'' Dickey said. ''It's just...
