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.
Reliever Jeremy Accardo (4-3) recorded the final five outs to get the victory while the loss went to Hideki Okajima (3-2). Curt Schilling started for Boston and gave up three runs over six innings.
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.
