Red Sox Hot Streak Continues in Toronto
Buchholz, Ellsbury lead Red Sox over Blue Jays
TORONTO (AP) – Clay Buchholz allowed three hits over seven
innings, Jacoby Ellsbury went 3 for 5 with three runs scored and
Boston beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Friday night, the Red
Sox's seventh straight win to match their season high.
Buchholz (5-3) struck out six and walked two as he ended a
career-long run of four straight no-decisions.
AL RBI leader Adrian Gonzalez drove in a run with a fifth-inning
single that gave the Red Sox first baseman seven consecutive games
with at least one run driven in. He drove in another run with a
ground-rule double off reliever Shawn Camp in the ninth that made
Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia drove in a run each for
Boston, which improved its league-best record to 37-26.
