Boston Red Sox Beat Toronto Blue Jays 4, TOR 3; Move One Game Back in Al East

Evan BrunellFeatured ColumnistSeptember 15, 2008

Jon Lester and the rest of the Red Sox held off Roy Halladay and the Toronto Blue Jays for a 4-3 win.

Kevin Youkilis tallied the all important sacrifice fly insurance run in the eighth inning as the Jays scored two in the ninth off of Jonathan Papelbon to make it a one run game.  It was Papelbon’s 38th save of the season.

Star of the Game: Lester

Eight innings pitched, four hits, only one run, two walks, and six strikeouts for his 15th win of the season.

Next Game: Now or never

Boston is one game back in the division to the Tampa Bay Rays with a three game set coming up.  The Red Sox goal for this series at the Trop should be to sweep.
