G102: Blue Jays 8, Red Sox 0

Red Sox   - 000 000 000 - 0  1  0
Blue Jays - 122 020 01x - 8 14  0
Marcus Stroman (7-1-0-2-7, 97) threw six no-hit innings before Shane Victorino opened the seventh with a single. ... The Red Sox also drew five walks. Yippee!

While batting with two outs in the ninth, David Ortiz tweaked something in his back on a check-swing and had to leave the game. Jonny Gomes flied out to left for the afternoon's final out.

Rubby De La Rosa / Marcus Stroman
Holt, 2B
Victorino, RF
Ortiz, DH
Napoli, 1B
Nava, LF
Drew, SS
Bogaerts, 3B
Bradley, CF
Vazquez, C
Brock Holt is the first player in Red Sox history to start at every position other than pitcher or catcher in the same season.

David Ortiz's home run last night was his 37th at Skydome, the most ever by a visiting player. Also, Ortiz became the 14th-fastest player to reach 1,500 RBI (2,067 games) since RBI became an official stat in 1920.
Happy 10th anniversary!
And Mueller wins it.

My short post after that game. (I took my run-on sentence description and put it into DLUWT.)

"This game could really turn this team around. They played hard Friday, but fell short. Today, they stormed right back after both the fight and the Yankees' 6-run 6th and puts several runs on the board. ... I'm ready for a 20-4 run. I believe! How about you?"

From that day to September 3, they went 27-9!

If there is such a thing as a depressed frenzy, SoSH is in one right now.

This is still better than Bobby freaking Valentine.

That sets a painfully low bar.

"Perhaps we should re-sign Pierzynski and release him again. See if that does the trick."
