MLB: Boston 7, Toronto 5

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.

With the game tied 5-5 entering the eighth, Shawn Camp (3-2) surrendered a one-out solo shot to the Red Sox first baseman and Jed Lowrie (2-for-3, two RBI) followed with a run-scoring double.


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.
