TORONTO, Ontario, Canada (Wednesday, August 11, 2010) – The Red Sox hit four home runs and used a strong pitching performance from Clay Buchholz for their second straight win, 10-1 over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre on Wednesday evening. The win gives the Sox the series win and assures Boston at least a split of the season series against the Jays this season as the Sox have won three straight games and three in a row against Toronto.

Buchholz allowed just five hits and an unearned run over eight masterful innings for his 13th win on the season.

In the top of the first, the Red Sox jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a bases-loaded walk by Mike Lowell to force home a run. Jose Bautista hit a sacrifice fly to right in the bottom of the frame to tie the score.

Then, the Sox’ four-homer parade began in succession. Bill Hall led off with two straight home runs to left field in the second (14) and fourth (15). His fourth inning home run was a two-run shot, scoring Ryan Kalish in front of him and making the Red Sox lead 4-1. J.D. Drew added another run in the fifth on a solo shot to right (14), while Adrian Beltre crushed a three-run home run to right (21) to give the Sox an untouchable 8-1 lead later in the inning.

Later in the fifth, Bill Hall singled through the infield to drive home Mike Lowell with the ninth run, while Victor Martinez closed the book with an RBI single to right.

Buchholz was relieved by lefty Dustin Richardson, who allowed two hits and struck out two in the ninth. Shawn Marcum suffered his sixth loss of the season as he allowed seven hits and eight runs over four innings.

The Sox go for the sweep on Thursday afternoon when John Lackey faces Brett Cecil at 12:37 p.m.


* Carlos Delgado recorded his first professional hit since May 10, 2009 on Wednesday night in his second start for Triple-A Pawtucket. He finished 2-for-4 with a strikeout in a 5-1 loss to Lehigh Valley (PHI).
