The Blue Jays are still eluding to victory

The Toronto Blue Jays' preseason plan continued with another loss on Sunday.

This time the Queen City Club lost 3-1 to the Boston Red Sox. This is the seventh loss in nine games since training camp began in Florida.

In today's matchup, singles by Nathan Hickey and Dalton Guthrie in the eighth inning allowed the Red Sox to score two runs and secure the win. Jays shooter Andrew Bash was on duty at the time. He allowed two earned runs on three hits in two innings of work.

The only point for the Canadian team was the work of Alejandro Kirk, who threw the ball out of bounds in the sixth inning. It was his second preseason home run.

During the same period, a single by Masataka Yoshida allowed Jamie Westbrook to step to the plate and tie the score.

The Blue Jays will look to experience the joy of victory on Monday when they face the Philadelphia Phillies.
