The Blue Jays in a tough 2-0 hole send Jimmy Key (14-6 3.00 Grade 14Z) to the mound, while the Red Sox send Al Nipper (9-12 4.06 Grade 4).

The Red Sox would answer right back in the bottom of the 1st as Jim Rice hits a 2 run homer off Key. The Blue Jays would tie up the game in the 4th as Jesse Barfield singles in Garth Iorg. Jays would add bust open the game scoring 4 in the 5th. 3 run homer by Iorg the big hit. The Jays would score single runs in the 7th and 9th and Key would take care of the rest as they get back in the series with a 8-2 victory.
