TORONTO, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Mike Lowell socked a tie-breaking eighth-inning homer Tuesday, boosting the Boston Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over Toronto.
Lowell drove in a run with a third-inning sacrifice fly and J.D. Drew homered for the Red Sox, who took the first of a three-game series at Rogers Center.
Felix Doubront (2-2) was credited with the victory despite allowing the Blue Jays to forge a seventh-inning tie on Jose Bautista's major league-leading 35th homer.
Travis Snider pounded a three-run homer and Adam Lind added solo shot for Toronto.
