Red Sox streak halted, fall to Jays
The Red Sox’ win streak was stopped at four games Saturday as they fell to Toronto, 6-2, at Fenway Park. Boston’s bullpen faltered as Junichi Tazawa allowed two runs in an inning of work. Jose Bautista blasted two homers in the Blue Jays’ victory.
Felix Doubront was solid in his start for the Sox as he pitched 6.1 innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits. Shane Victorino drove in Boston’s only runs in the seventh.
What they’ll be saying: The Red Sox’ pressing, and virtually, only issue at this point in the season is their weak bullpen. It’s a sure bet that GM Ben Cherington will look to address the issue by the July 31 trade deadline.
