Aiming for top wild card, Blue Jays battle Red Sox

The Toronto Blue Jays will open a three-game home series with the Boston Red Sox on Friday night knowing that they have clinched a playoff spot.

The Blue Jays, who had Thursday off, wrapped up an American League wild-card berth when the Red Sox defeated the visiting Baltimore Orioles 5-3 on Thursday afternoon. J.D. Martinez hit a two-run home run in the eighth to propel the Red Sox to their third consecutive win.

The Blue Jays (87-69) are still trying to clinch the No. 1 wild-card spot that would give them home-field advantage for all games in the best-of-three opening playoff round.
