Game over: Blue Jays 1, Red Sox 0: The Red Sox went down 1-2-3 in the ninth as the game ended quickly.

Bottom 8th: Blue Jays 1, Red Sox 0: The Blue Jays scored their only run on Drew Sutton's error at third base. Mark De Rosa and Maicer Izturis each singled off Sox reliever J.D. Durbin, who secured the next two outs before Sutton's error. Bradley, playing left, recovered the ball in left that got by Sutton, made a nice relay throw to the cutoff man and the Sox nailed the second run at the plate.

Bottom 7th: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: A 1-2-3 inning for De La Torre, in his second inning of work. Surprise, surprise. Jackie Bradley shifted to left field, the first time this spring after weeks of the Red Sox indicating he would not play any left field.

Top 7th: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: A 1-2-3 inning for Jays closer Casey Janssen.

Bottom 6th: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: Jose Reyes walked facing Jose De La Torre, who pitched so well for Puerto Rico in the WBC. But that was it.

Top 5th: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: Bryce Brentz doubled for the Sox, but that's all they could muster against Happ.

Bottom 4th: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: A strong inning by Aceves as he struck out Bautista for the second time, induced a grounder by Adam Lind and struck J.P. Arencibia for the second time.

Top 4th: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: After two outs, Happ walked Ryan Lavarnway and hit Lyle Overbay with a pitch, but Mauro Gomez grounded into a force play.

Bottom 3rd: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: Aceves allowed a leadoff double to Mark DeRosa and then balked him to third base., but Aceves recovered nicely and retired the next three batters.

Top 3rd: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: Another 1-2-3 inning for Happ

Bottom 2nd: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: Aceves throws a 1-2-3 inning with a strikeout of Arencibia.

Top 2nd: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays 0: Happ mows down the Sox.

Top 1st: Red Sox 0, Blue Jays: Jackie Bradley Jr. had a wind-blown pop up double with two outs, a ball that Jose Reyes misjudged vs. J.A. Happ, who may wind up being Toronto's fifth starter over Ricky Romero.
