TORONTO - Jose Bautista kept his cool at the plate.

No beefs with the home plate ump this game, but no hits either.

In that regard the Toronto Blue Jays slugger remained cold, and with his 0-for-3 performance Monday night he stretched his hitless skid to 0-for-14.

On the bases, though, Bautista was a warrior as thanks to his hard slide at second base he prevented a double play that keyed a three-run comeback in the ninth inning to send the game into extra innings.

Bautista’s effort went for naught, however, as Boston came back with a run in the top of the 10th inning and it proved to be the winner as the Red Sox pulled out a 4-3 victory.

Brock Holt, who reached base on an infield single then stole second and third, came home on a two-out single up the middle by Yoenis Cespedes off Jays reliever Aaron Sanchez.

Trailing 3-0, the Jays loaded the bases in the ninth inning on singles by Jose Reyes and Melky Cabrera and a Bautista walk.
