Description: Red Sox closer Junichi Tazawa was charged with his second loss of the season Saturday against Toronto.
Insight: Adam Lind took him deep to give the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning. With Andrew Bailey and Joel Hanrahan still on the sidelines, Tazawa (2-2, 3.31 ERA) will continue to be Boston's last line of defense in the late innings.

Description: Red Sox manager John Farrell said that he will use Junichi Tazawa in the ninth inning with both Joel Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey on the disabled list, according to Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio.
Insight: Farrell wants to keep Koji Uehara in the eighth inning. Neither Hanrahan or Bailey has a timetable for a return, so Tazawa could hold onto the role for a while if he succeeds.
