Toronto defeated the Red Sox 5-4 on Saturday (June 6) at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
The game came down to the final seconds of the ninth inning. Leading 5-3, Eric Swanson gave up three straight hits to put the Red Sox down 5-4.

Connor Wong followed with a well-timed shot to left-center field. The ball was caught by center fielder Kevin Kiermaier in front of the left-center field fence, known as the Green Monster.
The problem was that Liz Maguire, who was at second base, thought it was a home run and rounded third base. McGuire threw his hands up in the air as the ball stretched out, acting like he had just scored a walk-off home run. His late throw to second base resulted in a double play and the game was over.
In the end, Maguire gave his hometown team Toronto a win.
Boston manager Alex Cora told MLB.com that “almost everybody on the team thought it was a home run,” and called it a team mistake.

Toronto jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the third inning on a solo home run by Brandon Belt, a double by Alejandro Kirk and an RBI single by Dalton Bashaw.
Rafael Devers’ three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth tied the game at 3-3, and Belt’s RBI single in the top of the sixth put the Jays back in front. Kiermeyer’s RBI single in the ninth added another run.
Starter Jose Berrios earned his ninth win of the season, going 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk with six strikeouts.
Meanwhile, Boston removed outfielder Alex Verdugo from the game for no particular reason. MLB.com reported that Verdugo was removed for disciplinary reasons after failing to report to work on time for the day.
