BOSTON, June 29 (UPI) -- Jose Bautista's home runs Saturday, including a go-ahead, two-run shot in the eighth inning, powered the Toronto Blue Jays over Boston 6-2.

Bautista's first blast, a solo shot, came in the sixth and gave Toronto a 2-0 lead, but the Red Sox came back to tie it in the seventh on a two-run single by Shane Victorino.

Then in the eighth, Jose Reyes led off with a single against Junichi Tazawa (4-3) and Bautista followed by belting a 2-1 pitch into the seats above Fenway Park's "Green Monster" left field wall.

Aaron Lind went 3-for-4 with an RBI for Toronto, which rebounded from two straight losses against American League East-leading Boston.

Steve Delabar (5-1) earned the win with 1 2/3 scoreless relief innings.
