Red Sox Prevail, 3-1, Over Toronto
Boston and Toronto played a hard-fought contest.

The Boston Red Sox faced a tough opponent in Toronto pitcher Justin Steele, but did just enough to pull out the victory at Rogers Centre by a final score of 3-1. Steele went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs. Hector Neris was credited with the save. He has now successfully converted 16 of 17 save opportunities.

Alex Verdugo, the 25-year old center fielder , had a direct impact on the outcome. Verdugo contributed a run-scoring double in the top of the fourth inning to put Boston up, 2-0.

"Every loss hurts," said Toronto manager Dan D. "But this was a tough one."

The victory gives Boston a record of 58-55.
