TORONTO (AP) — Shane Victorino hit a two-run single in the 11th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia drew a one-out walk off Aaron Loup (4-5) and Will Middlebrooks followed with a single. Jacoby Ellsbury grounded into a fielder’s choice, with Middlebrooks forced at second and Saltalamacchia advancing to third.

Ellsbury stole second before Victorino grounded a two-run single up the middle.

Koji Uehara (3-0) worked 1 1-3 innings for the win as the Red Sox won for the ninth time in 13 games at Rogers Centre.

Trailing 2-1, the Blue Jays tied it in the bottom of the eighth when J.P. Arencibia hit a leadoff home run off Junichi Tazawa. The homer was Arencibia’s 18th and his first since July 19.
