Boston Red Sox Win 9th Straight Game, Longest Winning Streak of 2011
The Boston Red Sox got on the board first and never looked back in route to their Major League best (so far this season) ninth straight win.
The Red Sox pounded the Toronto Blue Jays 14-1 on Sunday afternoon, outhitting their division rivals 17-2 in the blowout.
The win pushed the Red Sox to 39-26 and kept them two games ahead of the New York Yankees for first place in the American League East division.
The Sox reached their ninth straight win behind offensive contributions from David Ortiz and Kevin Youkilis, who each had a homer and four RBI in the game. Adrian Gonzalez and Dustin Pedroia added a homer and two RBI each, and every Boston batter had a hit except J.D. Drew.
Jon Lester dominated the Blue Jays for eight innings to improve to 9-2 on the season, allowing just a pair of hits and one walk while striking out eight.
The Blue Jays only run came on a solo-homer by Jose Bautista, his Major League leading 21st of the season.
