Blue Jay days: Sox salvage one over the weekend

The Red Sox are now 2-4 against the Toronto Blue Jays, and had it not been for a collapse on Friday they would be an even 3-3. Sunday the Sox took the last of the 3 games in Toronto with a big boost Big Papi David Ortiz's 2 run homer in the 1st (above) and from "Burger King" Keith Foulke who shut down the heart of the Jays order, including getting out of a two on-one out situation. He rang up 3 strikeouts in his impressive 1 and 2/3 innings of work.

Matt Clement improved to 2-1 with a pretty good showing, including fighting out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth.

In 5 and 1/3 innings he gave up 7 hits, 3 runs (one a 3 run home run by catcher Gregg Zaun), 2 earned with two walks, 4 Ks.

"Wild Thing" Jonathan Papelbon came in with a 3 run lead in the 9th and again picked up the save (an American League leading 8th). Paps let two runners reach before striking out Vernon Wells and getting Troy Glaus to ground into a double play.

The nickname "Wild Thing" could end up sticking with Papelbon as long has his hair cut does (above photo Courtesy: Boston Dirt Dogs). See the video of it here...
