Curtis Granderson hit a walk-off home run off closer Craig Kimbrel as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre.
The Red Sox had previously rallied to score two runs in the top of the ninth inning to tie the game 3-3. Brock Holt singled with runners on first and third to score Rafael Devers and complete the comeback.
But just an inning later, Granderson launched a 2-0 fastball from Kimbrel over the right field wall to give the Jays the win.
Rick Porcello (4-0) settled in after a rough second inning in which he allowed three runs, going seven strong with nine strikeouts. At one point he retired eight Jays batters in a row.
