Tellez homers twice and Grichuk hits solo shot as Blue Jays dump Red Sox 10-3

Tellez homers twice and Grichuk hits solo shot as Blue Jays dump Red Sox 10-3 TORONTO — Rowdy Tellez hit two homers and drove in five runs as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 10-3 on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and Freddy Galvis scored two runs apiece and Randal Grichuk hit a solo homer for the Blue Jays, who gave starter Marcus Stroman plenty of run support for a change. Stroman, who entered play with a major-league low average of 1.55 runs of support per nine innings — worked into the seventh inning for his second win of the year. It was the first career multi-homer game for Tellez. The Blue Jays, who outhit Boston 11-7, have won three of their last five games.

Toronto snapped a three- game slide and ended its disappointing season 76-86 after finishing 89-73 a year ago. Coming off consecutive trips to the AL Championship Series, where they lost both times, the Blue Yankees rookie starter Jordan Montgomery allowed one run and two hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Hicks' second hit of the game was a solo shot in the eighth that brought the Yankees within a run.

Toronto escaped a jam in the sixth when reliever Thomas Pannone walked two batters to start the inning. Hudson replaced him on the mound and got the three outs.
