Red Sox Hold off Blue Jays with Moreland's Bat and Bullpen

BOSTON (AP) Mitch Moreland's crack of the bat in a nearly empty Fenway Park was easily heard. Alex Verdugo's yell after his homer-saving catch might have been even louder.

Verdugo hit two solo homers over the Green Monster and made a homer-robbing grab, Mitch Moreland hit a two-run shot and Boston's beleaguered staff rebounded to lift the Red Sox past the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Friday night.

Verdugo snagged Travis Shaw's bid with his leaping grab in the ninth inning, pulling the ball back before it landed in Toronto's bullpen, and Moreland added a bases-loaded walk to help Boston win its second straight following a four-game losing streak.
