Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts (pictured) slammed two home runs, including a two-run go-ahead shot in the top of the seventh inning, to help lift Boston past the Blue Jays 4-3 at Rogers Centre Wednesday night.
The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Boston.
Betts had put the Red Sox on the board with a lead-off home run in the first inning before Toronto tied the game in the bottom of the frame off starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez.
The two teams traded runs again in the fifth before the Jays pushed a run across in the bottom of the sixth for a 3-2 lead.
In the seventh, Brock Holt singled up the middle with one out. Betts then went opposite field to right with his eighth home run of the year to give the Red Sox the lead.
Holt remained hot with three hits in four at bats, extending his hitting streak to eight games. He has multiple hits in five of those contests.
Rodriguez went 6.2 innings to improve his record to 3-0. He was charged with all three Toronto runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three.
