BOSTON, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Anthony Gose drove in five runs Saturday, powering the Toronto Blue Jays to a 9-2, rain-delayed victory over Boston.

Gose's two-run single highlighted a five-run second inning that broke the game open for the Blue Jays, who clinched their three-game series.

Toronto outfielder added a three-run homer in the ninth to cap the scoring after the contest had been delayed twice by rain.

Yunel Escobar also went deep to aid Toronto's victory.

Brad Lincoln (1-0) was credited with the win after the delays interrupted starter Aaron Laffey, who had allowed two runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka (1-5) was pounded for five runs on five hits while lasting just 1 1/3 innings.

Pedro Ciriaco and Scott Podsednik drove in runs for the Bosox.
