A Rajai Davis single + two Red Sox errors = Wednesday's least expected run

main image

With a little magic, Rumpelstiltskin spun straw into gold. With two errors by the Red Sox, Rajai Davis spun a single into a run.

When he hit a grounder through Jon Lester's legs, Davis seemed perfectly content to take first base. But then Lester shoveled the ball into foul territory, and Davis found himself sliding into third. But then Shane Victorino bungled the throw to Will Middlebrooks, and -- lo and behold -- the Blue Jays were suddenly up 1-0.
