AP Sports Writer

       BOSTON (AP) – Steve Pearce had three of Toronto’s 14 hits to lead the Blue Jays to a 10-4 victory over Boston on Monday night and send Red Sox starter Rick Porcello to his major league-leading 16th loss.

        Boston lost for the fourth time in five games. Its lead in the AL East was trimmed to 2 1/2 games over the New York Yankees, who beat Baltimore in the afternoon.

        Kendrys Morales hit a three-run shot for Toronto in the first inning. Jose Bautista connected for a solo drive in the third, and Raffy Lopez chased Porcello (9-16) with a two-run homer in the sixth.
