Blue Jays - 010 000 000 - 1 7 2 Red Sox - 040 002 02x - 8 8 1Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jacoby Ellsbury -- the #8 and #9 hitters in the order -- each drove in three runs, as Boston cruised to its second straight victory. After an 0-6 start, the Red Sox have gone 4-4.
Four straight hits in the second -- singles by Jed Lowrie, J.D. Drew, and Salty, and a three-run bomb to right field from Ellsbury (his 3rd homer of the season) -- quickly erased Toronto's lead and gave Lester (6-6-1-3-5, 110) a decent cushion to work with.
Salty's second single of the afternoon drove in two runs in the sixth. In addition to his hit in the second, Lowrie also reached base twice on errors. His line drive past first baseman Adam Lind in the eighth scored the Sox's final two runs; it was ruled a two-base error.

Dear Red Sox" thread. Some of the notes to the team:
Please lose less often than every game.AL East: Orioles/Cleveland (1 PM); Twins/Rays (1:30 PM); Rangers/Yankees (8 PM).
It is not necessary or proper to honor Earth Day by turning the lights out on the 2011 season.
Giving the other teams in the AL East a 10 game head start may "sound" like a good idea in theory, but it's not actually one.
Please turn your 3rd one game winning streak of the season into a two game winning streak. Is it really that fucking hard to win two in a row!!! Thanks for listen.
