BOSTON, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Vernon Wells broke up a tie game with a two-run homer in the ninth Wednesday, giving Toronto a 6-4 decision over Boston.
Wells had three hits and scored twice while Troy Glaus also hit a homer for the Blue Jays.
Boston's lead over the New York Yankees in the AL East dwindled to six games. The Red Sox had won their previous four outings.
Toronto tied it at 4-4 on a solo homer by Glaus in the eighth inning and Wells put the Blue Jays in front with his blast that came after Okajima hit Gregg Zaun with a pitch.
