Homer hat trick propels Sox
McGowan struggles in start
Dustin McGowan faltered after riding a hot streak into Saturday's start, and Boston had a three-run lead after three innings. Troy Glaus got the Jays on the board with a solo homer and Aaron Hill tied the game with a two-run shot, but McGowan and reliever Brian Tallet let Boston take the game back in the sixth.

Series at a glance:
Ortiz, Hinske, 'Tek go deep
Daisuke Matsuzaka didn't have his best stuff, but the Red Sox offense made sure it didn't matter. David Ortiz homered in the first inning and Eric Hinske in the fourth, and after Dice-K let the Blue Jays tie the game, the bats came through in the sixth inning, scoring five runs to secure the victory.
