Shane Victorino was officially hitless in five at-bats yesterday.

Judging by the crowd of exuberant teammates surrounding him in the ninth inning after his grounder went under the glove of Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Josh Thole, Victorino just might be alright with that 0-for.

Thole’s misplay allowed the Red Sox to take the series with a 5-4 walkoff win at Fenway Park and push the Blue Jays a little deeper into last place in a tight AL East.

It was the second walkoff for Victorino this season and the seventh this year by the Red Sox, as they moved 81⁄2 games up on Toronto, which came into the four-game series on a hot streak and just 61⁄2 back.

“Anyway you can get a ‘W’ at the end of the day,” Victorino said after the Red Sox picked up their AL-best 50th win of the season. “I’ll take an 0-for-5 with a walkoff win. That’s the kind of stuff that makes your off-day a little bit easier. It’s a big win.”

Thole was in the game as a replacement for Blue Jays regular first baseman Adam Lind, who left before the bottom of the third inning with mid-back tightness. Brandon Snyder reached with a one-out single and Jacoby Ellsbury followed up with a walk to put men at first and second in the bottom of the ninth.

Victorino, batting left-handed against Blue Jays righty Casey Janssen, pulled a pitch that forced Thole to move a little to his right. Thole, who has spent most of his career as a catcher but worked some at first base during spring training, watched the ball slide under his glove, allowing pinch-runner Jonathan Diaz to score the winning run.
