The Red Sox didn’t get off to a good start against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, but Boston’s young players lifted it to a 4-3 win.
The veterans helped out, too, as David Ortiz got the Red Sox on the board with a groundout in the top of the fourth. But it was all up to the youngsters from there. Travis Shaw knocked in two runs with his single in the fifth, tying the game 3-3. Then Jackie Bradley Jr. put Boston ahead for good with a sacrifice fly in the eighth.
“We’re growing up right before our very eyes,” interim manager Torey Lovullo said on “Red Sox Final” after Sunday’s game at Rogers Centre. “Our young kids are rising to the challenge in some pretty difficult circumstances and pretty difficult environments. There’s a lot of bright things on the way for the Boston Red Sox, and it’s fun to watch right now.”
