RBI hits from Aaron Hill and Royce Clayton in the second helped back a strong effort from starter Jesse Litsch as the Blue Jays beat the Red Sox. The win salvaged a split of the series and left Toronto 10 games back.
Josh Beckett gave up only two runs over eight innings but was outdueled by Jesse Litsch in a loss to the Blue Jays, denying him a chance at win No. 13. Beckett struck out eight and walked two for his third loss of the year.
