Edwin Encarnacion hit two of Toronto's four home runs, accounting for four RBI, as the Blue Jays took down Boston by a 7-4 count in the opener of a three-game series on Tuesday at Fenway Park.

Melky Cabrera ended up 4-for-5 with a solo homer, two runs batted in and three scored for the Jays, winners in six of their last eight. Erik Kratz also went deep for the victorious visitors.

J.A. Happ (3-1) allowed four runs on seven hits while fanning six and walking two over five-plus innings. Casey Janssen worked out of a jam in the ninth for his fourth save.

Jonny Gomes finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who have lost four in a row on their current homestand and six of their last seven overall. Dustin Pedroia and Jackie Bradley drove in a run each in defeat.

Felix Doubront (2-4) was tagged in the setback for five hits and as many runs while not surviving the fifth inning.
