Red Sox take opener
Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 1
Julian Tavarez picked up his second win this year as a starting pitcher. (Frank Gunn/AP)
 Lowell's two-run homer
 Gonzalez's two-run double
Alex Gonzalez's two run-scoring doubles and Mike Lowell's second-inning two-run homer gave Julian Tavarez all the run support he needed to pitch a complete-game victory against the Jays. For the Red Sox, it is only their second complete game all season by a starter.
