Toronto has been kept in Fenway Park through the first three games of the series, dropping the Blue Jays' record to 1-6 in games they do not hit a home run. It's the first time they have gone three straight games without a homer since a five-game stretch June 28-July 2. Red Sox: Lowrie continues hot streak
Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 and picked up an RBI on his 27th birthday Sunday. Boston's switch-hitting utility man is batting .462 this season.
Since that last Fenway Park victory, Matsuzaka has an ERA of 9.36 in five home starts.Worth noting
Some baseball laws apparently are made to be broken, too, such as the one that preaches plate discipline as a key to victory: With two walks Sunday, the Red Sox tied the Mariners at 61 free passes for the most in the American League. At 4-10 and 5-11, those two teams also have the poorest records in the league.
