BOSTON -- A pair of Ethiopians took the men's and women's titles at the 120th Boston Marathon on Monday, but the Toronto Blue Jays won a marathon of their own at Fenway Park.
Russell Martin came through with a two-out, two run single in the eighth inning that capped a four-run frame, and the Blue Jays outlasted the Boston Red Sox 4-3 in the annual morning Patriots' Day game.
"It seems like games can be kind of long here," Martin said. "I felt like guys were battling, grinding through at-bats on both sides."
