Seven strong innings from starting pitcher Rich Hill and a three-hit, two-RBI performance by Travis Shaw helped the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 4-3 in Toronto on Sunday afternoon.

Hill (pictured) gave up three runs in the bottom of the second inning but shut Toronto after that. He struck out ten batters - the second consecutive start with that many K's - while scattering seven hits and not walking a batter. It was Hill's first win as a starter since 2009.

The first Red Sox run came in the top of the fourth inning on an RBI ground out by David Ortiz. Shaw drove in two more an inning later with a single to tie the score.

Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in the game-winner with a sacrifice fly in the eighth.

Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts each had two hits in the win.
