G148: Red Sox 4, Blue Jays 3

Red Sox   - 000 120 010 - 4 10  1
Blue Jays - 030 000 000 - 3  9  3
The Red Sox authored another come-from-behind victory on Sunday afternoon, with Jackie Bradley hitting a sacrifice fly to snap a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning.

Toronto stranded a runner at second base in the bottom half on the ninth, against Robbie Ross. Justin Smoak - who made the final out in yesterday's game - struck out to end this affair.

Rich Hill (7-7-3-0-10, 107) is the first Red Sox pitcher in history to record at least 10 strikeouts in each of his first two career starts for the team.

Travis Shaw went 3-for-4 and drove in two runs in the fifth inning. ... Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts each had two hits, and X scored twice.

The Yankees - who now trail the Blue Jays by three games - and Mets play tonight at 8 PM.

EliasSports: Rich Hill is 2nd pitcher since 1900 to begin a season with back-to-back 10K starts in September or later (Karl Spooner, 1944).

From John Thorn:
September 20, 1903: A bad day for the Poughkeepsie Giants (Class D Hudson River League) as they drop a quadruple header to Hudson by the scores of 2-1‚ 6-4‚ 3-1‚ and 4-2. This is the only quadrupleheader of the 20th century. For more, see:
