PLAYERS: Rajai Davis
TEAMS: Toronto Blue Jays
Your browser does not support iframes. Toronto Blue Jays left fielder Rajai Davis scored on a grounder to the pitcher, with the help of two errors by the Boston Red Sox infield, during the third inning of Wednesday night's game at the Rogers Centre. The grounder up the middle by Davis hit Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester in the leg. Lester was able to track it down, but his underhand shovel throw went past first base. Lester's bad throw was eventually tracked down by right fielder by Shane Victorino as Davis ran to third base. However, Victorino made things worse with another bad throw towards third that was off the mark and allowed Davis to score. In the end, Davis was credited with an infield single, while Lester and Victorino were each charged with an error. The Blue Jays won the game 4-3 in 10 innings. Video via MLB.
