It was a long night for the Boston Red Sox as their bats were asleep, and they were shut out by the Blue Jays in Toronto, Canada, on Wednesday, September 11th, losing 8-0.

Only Brock Holt and Rafael Devers managed singles. Sox batters struck out 9 times and only walked once.

Meanwhile it was a bullpen game. Bobby Poyner pitched well not allowing a hit to start the game, going 2 innings. But then Trevor Kelley allowed 2 runs in 1.2 innings, and Ryan Weber allowed 4 runs in 0.2 innings. Brian Johnson erased the batter he faced but then Travis Lakins allowed 2 runs in the 5th inning before recording the final out, and Toronto was up 8-0 after 5 innings.

The tragic number for the Red Sox to be eliminated from the Wild Card is 7 games.

The Red Sox will play the final game of the 3 game series Thursday night in Toronto. It will be another bullpen game with Jhoulys Chacin making the start for the Red Sox. Pregame starts at 6:05 and 1st pitch at 7:07. Hear this and every Red Sox  game on  AM 1370 WDEA in the Ellsworth and Bar Harbor area and The Rock 101.9 FM, WOZI in Presque Isle
