TORONTO, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Brett Lawrie socked a game-winning solo homer in the 11th inning Monday, handing the Toronto Blue Jays a 1-0 decision over the Boston Red Sox.
After blanking Toronto for 10 2/3 innings, the Blue Jays finally reached the Red Sox pitching staff for a run in the 11th.
Dan Wheeler (2-2) retired the first two batters of the inning, but Lawrie then blasted a pitch deep into the left-center field stands for a no-doubt homer, giving the Blue Jays their ninth walk-off win of year.
The homer made a winner of Shawn Camp (3-3), who tossed a scoreless top of the 11th. Toronto starter Henderson Alvarez threw six shutout innings.
Josh Beckett delivered 3 2/3 scoreless frames before leaving the game with a sprained ankle and Alfredo Aceves came in to hurl 3 2/3 additional shutout stanzas.
The American League wild card-leading Bosox dropped 2 1/2 games behind the New York Yankees atop the American League East.
