Toronto Blue Jays 3 Boston Red Sox 5
The Blue Jays youth and inexperience was exposed Friday night against the Red Sox.
Toronto struggled at the historic Fenway Park on Friday night.
Two base running errors with runners in scoring positions cost the Jays.
Both Guerrero Jr and Bo Bichette made mistakes at third base costing the Jays two outs.
Blue Jays bench boss Charlie Montoyo made an error on Friday as well.
Montoyo sent Randal Grichuk running on a play that resulted in a strikeout and a throw out.
The lone bright spot for Toronto was Cavan Biggio who went 2-4 with an RBI.
The Blue Jays started Tanner Roark on the mound Friday.
Roark struggled with the Red Sox batters Friday giving up four earned runs on three hits in just three innings of work.
Ryan Weber got the start for the Red Sox, going three innings giving up five hits and two earned runs.
Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland was the hero on Friday night.
Moreland had three rbi’s on his bases clearing home run in the third inning off of Roark.
The Blue Jays have now lost five of their last six games.
Toronto now has a record of 4-7 on the season and now sit at the bottom of the AL East standings.
The Jays inability to close out close games has become their achilles heel this season.
The Blue Jays will continue their series with the Reds Sox on Saturday night.
First pitch is set for 7:30pm EST.
