A recap of last night's Toronto/Boston game.
Boston Red Sox's Alex Verdugo's two home runs helped defeat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 last night.

Cavan Biggio put the Jays ahead 1-0 at the top of the first inning with a lead off home run.

The Red Sox tied the game in the bottom of the first when Toronto walked in a run.

Toronto's starting pitcher, Tanner Roark, had a rough night on the mound, struggling to throw strikes.

Roark went three innings, giving up three hits, four earned runs, five walks, and struck out a batter.

In the bottom of the second inning, Verdugo hit his first home run of the game to put Boston ahead 2-1.

Bo Bichette tied the game at the top of the third inning by driving in Biggio with a double.

In the bottom of the third, though, Mitch Moreland hit a two run homer to put Boston ahead again 4-2.

Toronto got a run back at the top of the fifth inning when Vladmir Guerrero drove in Rowdy Tellez with a double.

The Sox went ahead by two runs again in the bottom of the eighth inning when Verdugo hit his second home run.

Moreland went 1 for 3 at the plate and had two RBIs.

Red Sox's starter, Ryan Weber, went three innings, giving up five hits, two earned runs, two walks, and struck out three batters.

Biggio went two for four at the plate and had a RBI.

Jays play the Sox again tonight.
