Red Sox edge slumping Blue Jays 8-7

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Hits paternity list, will miss start Tuesday

Johnson steps in for Eduardo Rodriguez, whose wife gave birth recently, to make his first start since 2015. Add in the fact that Boston has struggled on the road and that Stroman has had success against the Red Sox in his career, and I think it's a lean towards Toronto here, although I wish the line wasn't this big.

With all the sporting noise in town just down the street these days, turns out it was mostly wishful thinking as the Jays continued to be mostly run-shy in an 8-7 loss to the Red Sox.

The key base hit has eluded the Jays to start the season, but Tulowitzki has driven in a team-high 10 runs and has hit safely in seven of his last nine games.

"There are some good signs there", said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. Big hit or big pitch and maybe you win those. After Benintendi singled, Mookie Betts doubled to score Bogaerts. The American League East has been very competitive in the early going, so the Red Sox are actually in third place behind the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees. Boston outhit Toronto 15-12.

Ezequiel Carrera belted a pinch-hit, two-run home run in the ninth off reliever Matt Barnes, pulling the Blue Jays to within one, but that was as close as Toronto would get. We can't sit here and use that as an excuse or a crutch for much longer, but the reality is it's early. "Teams go through this". "We've just got to flat out play better and do it all on the same day". "Everything is under a magnifying glass".

"You definitely appreciate the call up more when you don't know what lies next", said Johnson, who gets the start against the Blue Jays Tuesday at Rogers Centre. Toronto is 3-14 in their last 17 games overall and 3-7 in Stroman's last 10 starts while the under is 36-16-1 in their last 53 games overall. He gave up six earned runs, 11 hits and a walk while striking out four.

"Some balls found holes early and then they capitalized on some bad pitches later on", he said.

"Honestly, I think the only way I think you can shake it off is to take one in the face before that", he said, referencing the liner he took off the face while pitching for Single-A Lowell. "I'll bounce back next start".

It marked Sandoval's first three-hit game since August 14, 2015 at Fenway Park vs. the Seattle Mariners when he went 3-for-5 with two doubles, three RBIs and two runs. He had six strikeouts.

- Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a run scored an RBI.

They did make a late attempt to come back in the ninth inning, with Russell Martin scoring on a RBI single from Steve Pearce, his first as a Blue Jay.

Sandoval - who took just six at-bats during 2016 before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery - has returned to switch-hitting this year after he worked with Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera on his right-handed swing this past offseason. The Blue Jays placed southpaw J.A. Happ (left elbow) on the 10-day disabled list before the game and recalled utilityman Ty Kelly from triple-A Buffalo.

Right-hander Ben Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Rodriguez's roster spot for the game Monday. The 20-game victor last season left his start Sunday during the fifth inning when he felt a tug in the elbow.
