Jays rebound to beat Red Sox 7-3
J.A. Happ threw six shutout innings
0 0

With the Toronto Blue Jays in need of a strong outing, J.A. Happ was there to provide it.

A day after Drew Hutchison lasted only into the third, Happ threw six shutout innings as the Blue Jays rebounded to beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3 on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre.

Happ (8-5) allowed six hits, struck out four and worked out of trouble to give his teammates a chance to generate some offence. Anthony Gose manufactured one run and Jose Reyes and Dioner Navarro each homered to give him the support he needed.

After Melky Cabrera's liner hit Boston starter Jake Peavy to help score the Blue Jays' (52-49) first run of the game, hitters really got to the right-hander in the sixth. Reyes hit a solo home run to add an insurance run, and Navarro hit a two-run shot to give the bullpen some breathing room.

Peavy allowed five earned runs on eight hits in 6 1/3 innings to lose his ninth game of the season. David Ortiz hit his 23rd home run of the season and third in two games against the Blue Jays and Stephen Drew hit his fourth of the year to drive in two runs in the ninth.

Unlike Monday, when the Red Sox (47-53) crushed Hutchison and long man Brad Mills in a 14-1 blowout, Toronto relievers didn't have to be taxed this time.
