BOSTON -- On a team with dangerous hitters like Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson, it was Ezekiel Carrera who played the hero for the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night.
Carrera, a .252 hitter, lifted a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning that proved to be the final blow in an important 4-3 victory for the Blue Jays over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
"Zeke's got that ability, he can just flick a ball," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "That's one of his strengths and he just hung in there, got enough barrel on it."
