The Toronto Blue Jays had the fireworks booming, offensively that is, as they accounted for five home runs tallying 11 total runs, routing the rival Red Sox 11-2. First baseman Justin Smoak hit two home runs, one from each side of the plate as the Jays knocked Red Sox starter Rick Porcello out of the game after the second inning (he allowed seven runs). Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson accounted for the other home runs, and Toronto totaled 16 hits on the Sox pitching staff.

Toronto starter Mark Buerhle pitched seven innings, allowing one run on four hits while striking out seven batters earning his ninth win on the season. Buerhle continued his workhorse season and career as the Blue Jays were able to keep pace in the ultra-competitive AL East. The Blue Jays continue their series with the Red Sox tomorrow as Wade Miley takes on left-hander Matt Boyd.
