The Red Sox scored eight runs on nine hits in the top of the first inning en route to an 12-6 win over the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. Toronto starter Matt Boyd didn't even stick around long enough to record an out in that first inning.

The win gave Boston a 5-2 record on the road trip as they come home for the July 4th holiday weekend at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox pounded out nineteen hits including back-to-back home runs by David Ortiz (pictured) and Hanley Ramirez in the first inning. For Ortiz, it was the 480th of his career.

Xander Bogaerts and Brock Holt led Boston with four hits. Mookie Betts and Alejandro De Aza each had three.

Wade Miley got the win, though his performance was less than dominating. He lasted five innings, allowing four runs in the on seven hits and an equal number of walks while striking out two.
