BOSTON (AP) Thanks to a miscue by Toronto [url=]Andrew Cashner Jersey[/url] , the Boston Red Sox moved one step closer to clinching the AL East title.J.D. Martinez hit his 41st home run and the Red Sox scored the tiebreaking run on an eighth-inning error, completing a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays with a 4-3 victory Thursday night.After the Blue Jays rallied for two runs to tie it at 3 in the top of the eighth, Xander Bogaerts doubled in the bottom half and stole third. He came home when Toronto second baseman Yangervis Solarte dropped a popup in shallow right field.That was a huge situation, Bogaerts said. Ive made errors to make us lose, so I definitely know how he feels. But its good were on the good side.Rafael Devers also went deep for the major league-leading Red Sox (101-46), who pulled 10½ games ahead of the idle New York Yankees and decreased their magic number to six for securing a third straight division crown.Boston is the only team in the majors thats already locked up a playoff berth.Brandon Workman (5-0) faced one batter, ending Torontos eighth-inning rally with just three pitches, and got the win. Craig Kimbrel earned his 40th save.Danny Barnes (3-3) took the loss for the Blue Jays, who were down 3-1 entering the eighth.We clawed back into it after the bullpen did a nice job, manager John Gibbons said.Lourdes Gurriel Jr. homered in the eighth for Toronto and the Blue Jays added another run after Justin Smoak walked with two outs and Kendrys Morales followed with a single. Joe Kelly hit Randal Grichuk with a pitch to load the bases, then plunked Kevin Pillar to force in the tying run.He knows that tonight wasnt a great night for him, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said about Kelly.Devers hit a solo homer with two outs in the sixth off Mark Leiter Jr., putting Boston up 3-1.Martinez went deep in the second [url=]Chance Sisco Jersey[/url] , tying Oaklands Khris Davis for the major league lead in homers.Sam Gaviglio pitched 3 1/3 innings for Toronto, allowing two earned runs and six hits.ON THE RUNBogaerts said he wanted to be aggressive after his double in the eighth and he got a great jump as Barnes was pitching to Blake Swihart.I was just trying to get to third and make things a little bit easier, Bogaerts said. Trying to get a guy home from third with one out is better than trying to get a guy in from second.Bogaerts was halfway down the third-base line and had a clear view as Solarte tried to get under the ball before it bounced off his glove.You have to make that play. Its not always easy when the infield is in, Gibbons said.SOLID STARTBoston starter Eduardo Rodriguez recovered from a rough outing in a 6-3 loss to Houston last Friday, when the Astros tagged him for five runs and six hits over 3 1/3 innings.Rodriguez struck out seven in six innings this time, retiring the last nine batters he faced. He struck out two in the sixth before the Red Sox turned it over to their bullpen in the seventh. He allowed one run on five hits and didnt walk a batter.It was only his third start since coming off an extended stint on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle.Cora said he wasnt about to push Rodriguez.It was more about taking care of him, the manager explained. I felt that six was good. The way he threw the ball in the sixth inning was good enough for me.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: 3B Eduardo Nunez left in the fourth with soreness in his right knee after hitting a leadoff double. Nunez, who tripped and stumbled over first base while running out a fielders choice in the second, was replaced by Devers.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (7-11, 5.32 ERA) starts Friday for Toronto in the first of three games at Yankee Stadium.Red Sox: RHP Hector Velazquez (7-2, 3.29) gets the ball when Boston opens a three-game series at home against the New York Mets. MESA, Ariz. (AP) Oakland Athletics pitcher Liam Hendriks wants to taste soy sauce ice cream. Teammate Marco Estrada is hoping to spend a day at Tokyo Disneyland. Athletics manager Bob Melvin just needs to pack.Melvin and the Athletics head to Japan on Thursday for the major league opening series against the Seattle Mariners at the Toyko Dome on March 20-21. The As and Mariners also faced each other in the last opening series in Tokyo, splitting two games in 2012. The Chicago Cubs and New York Mets played there in 2000 [url=][/url] , the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2004, and the Boston Red Sox and Oakland in 2008.Oakland went on to win the AL West seven years ago and reach the Division Series.In 12, it was very impactful for us, Melvin said Wednesday.The trip provides a break in the spring training routine. When the Athletics get back, they have three exhibitions against San Francisco before resuming the season March 28 against the Los Angeles Angels.You get so caught up in baseball here and your routine here, theyre going to see that baseball is played a little differently there, Melvin said. The crowds are different. There are a lot of fun things that youll kind of expand your horizons and understand that internationally, its a little different than what we do here and I think it will be good for them in the long run.Hendriks, a 30-year-rght-hander, cant wait. The Australian spent part of the offseason in London, Paris and Italy.Im really excited because Im a big history buff and, obviously, Japan is rich with history [url=]Caleb Joseph Jersey[/url] , Hendriks said. Im excited to go check out some of the sites.His wife has done some research and wants to check out the Toyosu Fish Market, the Ginza shopping area and the botanical gardens.My wife and I love to travel, Hendriks said. Were always looking at places. Well go, see what we need to see and then well go back.Melvin wasnt sure whether he would find time to see much of Tokyo.I dont know about sightseeing but maybe find a restaurant or two, he said. The last time, I didnt do any of that. The second time around, maybe take some time to smell the roses a little bit and look around. It should be a fun trip.Estrada, 35, who will start the second game in Tokyo, said hell do his research during the long flightThursday. Hes prepared for the loud drum-beating crowds at the Tokyo Dome.Im excited about everything, about checking out the entire country, Estrada said. I want to venture out and check out some restaurants and maybe try to bring back some of the Japanese whiskey.The As will take 30 players among a traveling party of 160, must pare the roster to 28 for the two games and designate 25 active for each game. Melvin knows it will be an emotional two days for Ichiro Suzuki [url=]Roberto Alomar Jersey[/url] , the 45-year-old Mariners outfielder who may be playing his final big league games.Hes had quite a flare for the dramatic over his career, Melvin said. Im hoping he doesnt come up in a situation that could hurt us. I know there will be some emotion involved in what hes going through.Usually, when Suzuki is in town for a series against the As, the outfielder gets together for dinner with Melvin, the Mariners manager in 2003-04. There may not be time on this trip, Melvin said.I dont know that theres been a more impactful player, at least since Ive been doing this, than Ichiro, Melvin said. He was beloved there. Hell be in the Hall of Fame there. Hell be in the Hall of Fame here. Hes one of the more impactful players for me in baseball history.NOTES: Opening day starter Mike Fiers had a rough outing in his last spring training game on Wednesday, allowing three home runs over 3 1/3 innings against the Chicago Cubs on a blustery day at Hohokam Stadium. Its not like any of those homers were sneaking over the fence, Fiers said. They had some good swings and made it tough on me. Fiers said he expected to be able to throw 75-80 pitches in the opener. LHP Jesus Luzardo will not make the trip to Japan but will start one of the exhibitions games against the Giants.
