Gibbons mused prior to the game that given his team's form of late, it's probably for the best that the Jays aren't seeing much of the Bosox early this season.

"We're a good team, we're just not playing up to our calibre".

The Blue Jays have shown some signs that they may be ready to turn things around but there is plenty of work to be done.

Toronto has a 133-166 record at home the versus the Red Sox since 1977. The left-hander gave up four hits and struck out six, including Mookie Betts, the Sox star outfielder who until that point had not gone down on strikes in 129 straight plate appearances dating to September, 2016.

After a quiet first three frames, Troy Tulowitzki reached first on a Pablo Sandoval throwing error in the bottom of the second. Russell Martin followed with a chopper that was misplayed by first baseman Mitch Moreland. He was charged with two runs, one of them a homer, the only one he's allowed this season. Ezequiel Carrera brought Barney home with a single for a third unearned run.
