Jackie Bradley Jr. (pictured) drove in three runs and David Ortiz had a key ninth-inning RBI single as the Red Sox came from behind to beat the Blue Jays 7-6 in Toronto.

Boston scored five times in the ninth inning to record its first win of the season when trailing after eight innings.

Xander Bogaerts put the Sox up 1-0 in the top of the sixth with his sixth homer of the year. After Toronto took the lead in the bottom of the inning, Bradly doubled home the tying run in the seventh.

Then, trailing 4-2 in the top of the ninth inning the Red Sox went to work. Brock Holt led off with a double and one out later Bradley homered to tie the game. Dustin Pedroia and Bogaerts both singled, followed by an RBI single by Ortiz.

Bogaerts scored on a wild pitch and Rusney Castillo drove in the final Boston run with a single.

Jose Batista made it close with a two-run blast off Robbie Ross Jr. in the bottom of the ninth.

Tommy Layne was the winner in relief. Wade Miley went 6.2 innings. He only allowed three hits but walked five in the no-decision.
