BOSTON (AP) -- Xander Bogaerts hit a tying homer in the ninth inning and catcher Christian Vazquez manufactured the winning run with his legs, rallying the Boston Red Sox past the Toronto Blue Jays 9-8 on Saturday night.
Bogaerts' leadoff shot to center field against closer Anthony Bass (2-3) made it 8-all before Vazquez reached on a fielder's choice with one out. Vazquez, who had three hits, stole second and advanced to third as Caleb Joseph's throw sailed into center field for an error.
Yairo Munoz hit a dribbler to third, but Travis Shaw's throw to the plate was off target and Vazquez slid in safely.
