Martin Perez tossed a no-hitter through six innings Thursday in what was a sensational outing for the Red Sox left-hander. He finished with one unearned run on three hits and five strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work. Unfortunately it was all for naught, as Boston spoiled Perez's night in the 10th inning.
Teoscar Hernandez crushed a go-ahead three-run homer off Sox reliever Phillips Valdez, then Lourdes Gurriel added insult to injury with a solo shot.
On the Red Sox side, Jackie Bradley Jr. homered for the second straight game and drove in both of the Red Sox's runs.
FINAL SCORE: Blue Jays 6, Red Sox 2
Red Sox Record: 12-26
