Red Sox – Toronto Tie
DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) _ Toronto shortstop Omar Vizquel’s throwing
error gave Boston two runs and helped the Red Sox tie a split squad
of Toronto Blue Jays 3-all Wednesday in a game halted after nine
Singles by Lars Anderson and Kelly Shoppach in the Boston fourth
and a wild pitch by Francisco Cordero put runners on second and
third with two outs. Vizquel fielded Juan Carlos Linares’ grounder
and threw low to first, the ball skipping past Edwin Encarnacion.
Ryan Sweeney’s sacrifice fly in the third inning gave Boston the
early lead. Encarnacion’s two-run single put the Blue Jays ahead in
the bottom half.
