BOSTON – Autorunner Cavan Biggio narrowly crossed the home plate in the 10th inning and allowed the Toronto Blue Jays to defeat the Boston Red Sox 6-5 in overtime Thursday to complete their three-game series sweep.
The Toronto team has won its last eight games at Fenway Park.
You can compete with anyone, you know what I mean,” said Gunner Jordan Romano, who took the win. “We came to their house and won a lot of matches. So I think it was a huge trip. It’s good for morale and it confirmed that we are real contenders for the title.”
The Red Sox had a third base runner with no teams in eighth and then carried the bases with no finals in ninth, but was unable to score on both occasions.
In the 10th inning, Biggio made it to third base on the ground and across the home board on a slap from George Springer. Xander Bogaerts’ throw for the receiver was too high to take out Biggio in time.
Danny Janssen has made three hits, including a home run, for the Blue Jays, who have won seven of their last eight games. They are 8-1 against the Red Sox this season.
Romano threw (5-3) in the ninth inning and earned the Red Sox, but then retired all three hits he faced in the tenth inning to win.
“I kind of tried to erase what happened in the previous round, because it was so full of adrenaline,” he said. We had to stay focused. We have three more hitters coming in and I thought, ‘Let’s win this match. »
Jon Skipper (3-3) didn’t allow a kick in the 10th minute, but he inherited the backhand. Reese McQuire has made three hits for the Red Sox, who have lost their last four games and six of their last seven.
