Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 3
Jason Varitek is congratulated after his first homer of the game in the third inning. (AP)
The Sox hit four homers in the fifth, but the loudest shot came from David Ortiz -- his first tater since September '08. Jason Varitek hit his second homer of the game in the inning, and Jason Bay and Mike Lowell added dingers. Brad Penny used the support, as well as 12 putouts by Jacoby Ellsbury, to earn his fourth win.
