The Red Sox put together another pair of exciting consecutive come-from-behind wins this past week and showed that they still have some fight left in them now that the season is a lost cause.

In their 4-3 win over the struggling Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, Boston entered the ninth with a three-run lead, but Uehara was at it again with his apparent love of theatrics of extra innings, and blew yet another save. To be fair, Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz was responsible for loading the bases in the ninth, but it was Uehara who gave up the double to Edwin Encarnacion to tie the score.

The Red Sox scored their first three runs in fifth inning, the first of which came off the bat of Mookie Betts. And just when you thought you would never hear another “La Luna!” from Don Orsillo, Pedroia crushed a two-run moon shot, his sixth of the year.

But it was The Legend of Brock Holt who came through the in the tenth with a base hit. He then stole two bases to conveniently put himself in position to score the go-ahead run when Yoenis Cespedes stepped up and singled to center field for the lead and, ultimately, the win.
