The Red Sox pounded out eighteen hits including four home runs in support of seven outstanding innings by John Lackey as Boston opened their seven-game road trip with a resounding 14-1 win over the Blue Jays in Toronto.
Ortiz blasted a pair of home runs to move one ahead of Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski into 36th place on the all-time MLB list. Ortiz has 453 career home runs. Drew and Napoli also went deep for Boston.
Lackey tossed seven dominant innings allowing one run on just two hits. He struck out three and didn't walk a batter.
Boston has now won five in a row and eight of their last nine games.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
