Lewis' sacrifice fly lifts Blue Jays past Red Sox

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO (AP) — Fred Lewis' sacrifice fly capped a four-run rally in the ninth inning and lifted Toronto to a 6-5 victory over Boston on Thursday, just the Blue Jays' third win in 12 games against the Red Sox this season.

Trailing 5-2, Toronto's Jose Bautista chased John Lackey by leading off the ninth with his major league-leading 36th homer. Jonathan Papelbon (4-5) came on and blew his sixth save of the season, and his first in 25 career chances against the Blue Jays.

Kevin Gregg (1-4) pitched one inning for the win.

David Ortiz and Jed Lowrie hit solo homers for the Red Sox, who had won 10 of their previous 11 in Toronto. Boston hit eight homers in the series, increasing its total to 155 this season. Only Toronto (179) has hit more.
