Sox extend AL East lead
Red Sox 13, Blue Jays 10
Mike Lowell's three-run blast in the first was his 18th of the year. (Brita Meng Outzen/MLB.com)
 Ellsbury's diving catch
 Lowell's three-run homer
 Pedroia's two-run single
Every hitter in Boston's lineup had at least one hit, and the Red Sox needed every run they produced as the Jays mounted a valiant rally off Daisuke Matsuzaka and the bullpen. With the victory, the Sox extended their win streak to three games and their AL East lead over the Yankees to seven.
