TORONTO - Shane Victorino’s two-run, two-out single in the top of the 11th inning snapped a 2-2 tie to give the Boston Red Sox a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays in the opener of a three-game series at Rogers Centre Tuesday night.

With Jarrod Saltalamacchia on third and Jacoby Ellsbury at first, Victorino worked the count to 1-2, long enough for Ellsbury to steal second uncontested. He then slapped Aaron Loup’s next pitch into centre field to put the Sox ahead.

In the bottom of the inning, Koji Uehara took out the middle of the Blue Jay lineup in order to earn the win.
