The Blue Jays hammered out five home runs in a 12-4 rout of the Red Sox on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park. The loss was Boston's 8th in their last 10 games.

Toronto scored at least one run in the 2nd through 6th innings. Boston starter Ryan Dempster was charged with 6 runs in the 5 innings he pitched. He gave up 6 hits including 3 home runs along with one walk. He struck out six in the loss.

Mike Napoli (pictured) got the Red Sox on the board in the bottom of the 4th inning with a solo home run. It was his 8th round-tripper of the season.

Napoli had 3 hits in the game; Dustin Pedroia added another pair. In a continuation of a highly disturbing trend, the Red Sox left an inexplicable 12 men in scoring position.
