* The Red Sox tied the series with a 5-4 11-inning, walk-off win last night, thanks to a Jed Lowrie home run. It was Boston’s first walk-off homer since August 26, 2009 when David Ortiz beat the White Sox. With last night’s triumph, the Sox have won four of the last games in the season series, securing a winning season against the Jays.

Rehab Update: Catcher Kevin Cash will have his rehab transferred to Short-A Lowell this afternoon when they conclude a series against Hudson Valley (TB). He began a rehab stint with Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday night, starting behind the plate and catching all nine innings, and going 1-for-4 with an RBI and run scored in the PawSox’ 7-6 loss in 10 innings to Lehigh Valley (PHI).

For the Record: The Sox are 70-54, good for third in the A.L. East and eighth-best in the Majors. They have won or split 22 of the past 27 series since May 17 and 27 of 35 since April 20, during which the Sox have the second-best mark in the A.L. Boston sits 6.5 games behind the first place Yankees in the division and 5.5 games back of the Rays in the Wild Card.

Home at last: The Red Sox continue a nine-day, nine-game homestand with the finale of a three-game series against the Blue Jays. The club took two of three from the Angels to begin the homestand and will also host the Mariners for a three-game set on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. After an off-day next Thursday, Boston embarks on a seven-day, six-game trip through Tampa Bay (August 27-29) and Baltimore (August 31-September 2). Of Boston’s 25 games from August 6-September 7, only nine tilts will be played at home, all during the current homestand. The club is 8-7 thus far during that stretch. The Sox have won 23 of the last 35 tilts at home since May 29, outscoring their opponents 181-156 in those contests. Boston has won or split 15 of its last 17 series at Fenway Park since April 20.

Alumni Day at Fenway: For the 13th consecutive year, the Boston Red Sox will host their annual “Alumni Day” at Fenway Park. Past Red Sox players and coaches will watch today’s game from the B3 and B4 suites on the first base side of the park’s 4th level. Red Sox alums scheduled to attend include: Dick Berardino, Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd, Billy Conigliaro, Sam Horn, Chris Howard, Walt Hriniak, Ted Lepcio, Skip Lockwood, Bill MacLeod, Keith MacWhorter, Frank Malzone, Bill Monbouquette, Bob Montgomery, Joe Morgan, Kevin Morton, Jerry Moses, Mike Roarke, Johnny Pesky, Jeff Plympton, Mike Stenhouse, Chico Walker and Gary Waslewski.
