TORONTO – When the Red Sox hit and pitch like they did on Monday afternoon, few teams can top them.

Especially the Blue Jays.

The 25-22 Red Sox ruined Victoria Day in Toronto by disposing of the 19-28 Blue Jays, 12-2, in almost laughably easy fashion in the first game of their series and road trip.

BOX SCORE: RED SOX 12, BLUE JAYS 2

Guerrero Jr. homers again, Blue Jays beat White Sox 5-2

Guerrero Jr. homers again, Blue Jays beat White Sox 5-2 The Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Sunday. Guerrero has hit all four of his homers in the last six games. The highly touted 20-year-old didn't homer in his first 13 games after making his major league debut in late April. BOX SCORE: BLUE JAYS 5, WHITE SOX 2 Guerrero's two-run drive broke a 1-all tie in the eighth inning. Jansen added a two-run homer in the ninth. Jose Abreu drove in two runs for the White Sox. Daniel Hudson (3-1) worked a scoreless seventh. Ken Giles gave up an RBI double to the first batter he faced, then got four outs for his 10th save.

Four Red Sox hit home runs, five knocked in at least one run and seven batters scored at least one time in the 16-hit barrage.

David Price looked sharp in his first start since May 2 when he was afflicted with elbow tendinitis. In his five innings and 67 pitches, he allowed two runs, neither of them earned, off three hits, one a home run, no walks and four strikeouts.

Four relievers each worked an inning, none of them allowing a hit.

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s first home run of the season stretched the Red Sox’ lead to 8-2, the two-run opposite-field blast off of Toronto starter Edwin Jackson’s replacement, Elvis Luciano, in the sixth inning.

The lead expanded to 10-2 an inning later, thanks to RBI from Rafael Devers and Steve Pearce.

Xander Bogaerts and Devers hit back-to-back solo home runs in the ninth inning. Bogaerts and Devers each had three RBI.

Tellez has 2 HRs, 5 RBIs and Jays power past Red Sox 10-3

Tellez has 2 HRs, 5 RBIs and Jays power past Red Sox 10-3 Rowdy Tellez had two homers and five RBIs and Randal Grichuk also homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 10-3 on Tuesday night.Tellez got the Blue Jays on the board in the fourth inning with his seventh home run of the season, a two-run shot off the third-deck façade above right field.One pitch later, Grichuk clubbed a solo shot over the left-field fence for his eighth of the year to pad Toronto's lead. It was the second time this year that Toronto has hit back-to-back home runs.On Tellez's next time up at the plate one inning later, he drove a towering three-run home run over the right-center-field fence. The three home runs tied a Toronto season high.

The Red Sox took the lead for good in the third inning, which began with a walk by Toronto starter Edwin Jackson of Andrew Benintendi. A groundout and Mitch Moreland double later, Bogaerts singled in two runs for the 4-2 lead. With two outs, Chavis belted his ninth home run of the season in only his 26th game and 95th big-league at-bat to put the Red Sox up, 6-2.

The Red Sox waited until after their first two outs to score their first two runs. Moreland reached first base on a groundball to second base that was ruled a base-hit, and then Bogaerts reached on a single. Rafael Devers then singled in Moreland for the first run. Then with Chavis up, Devers stole second base, the errant throw from catcher Maile allowing Bogaerts to trot home for the 2-0 lead.

That lead held until Luke Maile, he of the .216 slugging percentage and one home run on the season coming in, hit a two-out, two-run home run off of Price in the bottom of the second inning to tie the score at 2.
