BOSTON | Red Sox sweep Blue Jays, move closer to AL East crown
BOSTON — Thanks to a miscue by Toronto, the Boston Red Sox moved one step closer to clinching the AL East title.
J.D. Martinez hit his 41st home run and the Red Sox scored the tiebreaking run on an eighth-inning error, completing a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays with a 4-3 victory Thursday night.
After the Blue Jays rallied for two runs to tie it at 3 in the top of the eighth, Xander Bogaerts doubled in the bottom half and stole third.
