Blue Jays try again to slow rolling Red Sox

The Toronto Blue Jays were reminded Monday night why a close lead late never feels safe against this year's Boston Red Sox.

The refresher came courtesy of Alex Verdugo, whose go-ahead, two-run home run in the eighth inning carried the Red Sox past the visiting Blue Jays 5-4 in the opener of a four-game series. The victory was Boston's major-league-leading 33rd coming from behind and second in as many days.

"It's hard to get 27 outs against us. We know that," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. "We have some quality hitters from top to bottom, and obviously this is a tough place to play. You can feel the energy."
