Century City: Price, Red Sox blank Jays, win 100th

Century City: Price, Red Sox blank Jays, win 100th

Thanks to a miscue by Toronto, the Boston Red Sox moved one step closer to clinching the AL East title.

Starting pitcher Sale, who is 12-4 with a 1.97 ERA and 219 strikeouts in just 146 innings pitched this season, remains a front-runner for the American League's Cy Young award despite making just 23 starts this season.

Toronto's Tyler Clippard survived a double and two walks in the bottom of the eighth.

Toronto had the infield in with Bogaerts just 90 feet away, and Swihart sent one to a spot that would normally be routine for a second baseman. "But it's good we're on the good side".

Craig Kimbrel worked around a two-out walk in the ninth for his 39th save, digging out of a 3-0 hole against Lourdes Gurriel Jr.to retire the leadoff man in the inning.

Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Yangervis Solarte mishandles a pop fly during the eighth inning of a game against the Boston Red Sox, at Fenway Park, in Boston, Mass., on September 13, 2018. Joe Kelly hit Randal Grichuk with a pitch to load the bases, then plunked Kevin Pillar to force in the tying run.

"We've been very consistent on a daily basis preparing and going out there and playing", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said.

Jonathan Davis singled to right with one out in the sixth for his first major league hit and the second hit of the game for Toronto.

"We're focused on today", said Price, who struck out seven and improved 15-6.

Moments earlier, the 18th-ranked Coric had landed a delicate forehand drop-shot victor to close out a close second-set tiebreak. After being 6-1 down in the tiebreak, I just played aggressively and from then on the pressure just builds", said Querrey.

Rudy Giuliani Swipes at Mueller and the ‘Biased’ Media Over Manafort Deal
In a Twitter comment, the US leader called the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller "illegal" and said it "continues in search of a crime".

"I guess I would rather be in there from the start than to come in and pinch-hit", Holt said, "but if I keep on hitting homers then I'll take it". "The coaches wanted me to try to pick a good jump to see if I could get there and it worked out".

Bogaerts was halfway down the third-base line and had a clear view as Solarte tried to get under the ball before it bounced off his glove.

"You have to make that play".

Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez recovered from a rough outing in a 6-3 loss to Houston last Friday, when the Astros tagged him for five runs and six hits over 3 1/3 innings. Red Sox: 7-3, .257 batting average, 4.04 ERA, outscored opponents by six runs. He struck out two in the sixth before the Red Sox turned it over to their bullpen in the seventh.

In addition to the strikeouts, Sale allowed one base hit and hit a batter in his first start in almost a month.

Without Aaron Judge in the lineup, who has been on the disabled list since July 27 with a fractured right wrist, the Yankees have a huge void in their lineup.

"He needs to get better, and he knows it", Cora said. "I felt like I was rushing a little bit. Velocity was up - 93 (mph) with a good breaking ball".

The Blue Jays managed their only real chance against unconventional setup man Steven Wright in the eighth.

-Cora became the second Red Sox manager to lead the team to 100 wins in his first season with Boston, joining Jake Stahl (105-47 in 1912).
