DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) -- Toronto shortstop Omar Vizquel's throwing error gave Boston two runs and helped the Red Sox tie a split squad of Toronto Blue Jays 3-all Wednesday in a game halted after nine innings.

Singles by Lars Anderson and Kelly Shoppach in the Boston fourth and a wild pitch by Francisco Cordero put runners on second and third with two outs. Vizquel fielded Juan Carlos Linares' grounder and threw low to first, the ball skipping past Edwin Encarnacion.

Ryan Sweeney's sacrifice fly in the third inning gave Boston the early lead. Encarnacion's two-run single put the Blue Jays ahead in the bottom half.
