Price snaps 3-start losing streak as Sox beat Jays

Price snaps 3-start losing streak as Sox beat Jays

And that might also describe how Blue Jays starters have been taking the mound this season - on a wing and a prayer and a too-rapid segue to the bullpen.

Saturday was more of the same story.

J.D. Martinez delivered a two-run home run and later singled in a run as the Boston Red Sox edged the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Sunday at the Rogers Centre.

"It feels like it's usually a home run that kinda kills it for me", Estrada said. Estrada, who's allowed a team-high 10 home runs, will take a 5.32 ERA to the hill next Friday at home against the Oakland Athletics.

Estrada (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits over six innings. The left-hander went four innings, allowing three runs on four hits, but walked four and stuck out six. Martin provided some hot-corner thrills - first setting up in foul territory, straddling the line to field a ball deep beyond the base, and throwing a strike some 130 feet right into the chest of Smoak to get Betts; then, practically executing a jete-cabriolet tag on Christian Vazquez on a 2-5 caught-stealing.

Price was a midseason acquisition from the Detroit Tigers by the Blue Jays in 2015 and helped boost them into the postseason, where they lost the American League Championship Series to the Kansas City Royals.

But despite the loss, Estrada said he was content with his pitching.

"If that was the cause of the problem, then it started back in 1997, when I got my first PlayStation when I was 12 years old", Price said.

Marco Estrada has this signature thing, a quirk maybe, where he brings his hands to his mug in the start position and peers in over top the glove before beginning his delivery.

"I thought he was pretty solid", he said. Toronto is 0-9 in Biagini's last 9 starts against a team with a winning record and 3-13 in Biagini's last 16 starts overall while the under is 4-1-2 in their last 7 games overall. We just couldn't do a whole lot.

But (David) Price pitched a heck of a game, he was tough, so it was hard to score runs off him.

Price (3-4), in his first start since being diagnosed with a mild case of carpal tunnel syndrome earlier this week, allowed two runs and five hits, walked two and struck out six over 5 2/3 innings.

Said Price: "I can't recall another time I've been on the mound with someone running out".

"It's not that I wasn't comfortable with David against Russell but I thought it was a good outing, if he gets on base and someone hits a homer or something, all of a sudden it's like he struggled and he didn't", explained Cora.

The Red Sox got all the runs they needed in the third inning.

With one out, Mookie Betts doubled and scored when the following batter, Andrew Benintendi, hit a ground-rule double.

The Blue Jays scored once in the fourth. In Toronto's last 10 games, only twice has a starter gone six: Estrada and Estrada.

"Hopefully it's the first of many", Alford said of his first RBI. After he hit it, I didn't think it was going to go out but it did. Just a collective decision between me and the staff, to take a step back, do what I need to do for my shoulder, get my emotions and everything in sync, to get back to myself.

Bogaerts led off the fourth with a solo homer to tie the game before Boston tacked on another run on Maile's passed ball and error.

Benintendi hit his second RBI single off reliever Ryan Tepera in the ninth.
