Boston Ends Ten Game Losing Streak With Victory Over Toronto
Drabek strikes out five in five innings for Jays
DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) – Kyle Drabek struck out five and allowed
five hits over five innings in a matchup of sons of former
All-Stars, but Boston rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Toronto
Blue Jays on Monday in a game shortened by rain.
Tony Pena Jr., son of former major league catcher and current
Yankees bench coach, started for Boston in place of John Lackey,
who remained in Fort Myers because of the threat of rain. Play was
stopped for 21 minutes after the fifth inning, and the game was
called after the Red Sox batted in the top of the eighth.
Pena gave up one run and two doubles to Aaron Hill over three
Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a two-run homer in the seventh for Boston.
Drabek is the son of 1990 NL Cy Young winner Doug Drabeck.
