Chris Sale scheduled to start on Sunday

J.D. Martinez

Blue Jays: RHP Aaron Sanchez (right index finger) allowed four runs and five hits in three innings in a rehab start for Toronto's rookie-level Gulf Coast League team. Steve Pearce proved himself a Yankee slayer - at least for a weekend - with four home runs. "I mean he's the hottest hitter I think I've ever seen live, so it's tough to navigate that lineup".

The Blue Jays (51-60) have won 3 of 4 and, being 27 games behind the Red Sox, are playing for a matter of pride and a shot at.500 for the season.

Boston got just two hits over seven innings against starter Marcus Stroman.

There's also reason to be concerned about the continuing erratic performance of starter Drew Pomeranz, who couldn't get out of the fifth inning last night and issued five walks in his latest ineffectual start since battling back from injury.

Cora had hoped Sale would be able to return during a three-game series at Toronto that begins Tuesday. Moreland walked, and Martinez hit an RBI single.

The Blue Jays opened the scoring on a two-run homer by Devon Travis in the third inning.

Toronto restored their two-run lead in the seventh inning.

"That hurts, you know what their offence can do", Gibbons said. "I hate making us play extra innings but, again, our guys do what they do. That inning hurt. Definitely".

Boston used a four-run eighth to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 lead but couldn't close it out.

Moreland hit an RBI fielders choice to cut Toronto's lead to 3-2 in the top of the eighth.

Boston scored an unearned run in the fourth.

The Jays pulled within one in the home half of the eighth on a RBI double by Maile, but Barnes was able to strand the tying run at second by forcing Grichuk to foul out to first. Hauschild is making his second start of 2018, coming off a game in which he scattered four hits over six shutout innings. That tied him with Lourdes Gurriel Jr. for team's longest hitting streak this season.

Sale was surprisingly placed on the 10-day disabled list July 31.

TORONTO-Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale is scheduled to come off the 10-day disabled list and start against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.

Sale has a 2.04 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 11-4 record while striking out 207 and walking just 33 in 141 innings pitched (22 starts) this season.
