Jays, leveling their divisional foe 14-0.
Boston scored eight runs in the first three innings and didn’t look back. They chased Luis Perez from the game with two outs left in the second inning, after he was shelled for eight runs on 10 hits.
Toronto’s bullpen couldn’t stop the bleeding, either. The Sox pushed across another two runs in the fourth to make the score 10-0. The Sox have now scored 10+ runs in a game an astonishing 21 times this season.
Jon Lester had more than a comfortable cushion to work with and he cruised through seven scoreless innings, fanning 11 Jays in the process.
Marco Scutaro and Josh Reddick would finish off the Red Sox offensive assault with an RBI double and a solo home run, respectively. A number of Sox had multiple RBI games in Adrian Gonzalez (2), David Ortiz (2), Jarrod Saltalamacchia (2), and Marco Scutaro (39).
With the win, Boston is now once again 30 games over .500, their record standing at 86-56. Tim Wakefield will look to pick up his elusive 200th career victory tomorrow night in game three of the four game set. Brandon Morrow gets the start for Toronto.
