Sox Drop Chance at Sweep Vs. Jays

BOSTON (AP) – Shaun Marcum pitched two-hit ball for seven shutout innings and Travis Snider homered, doubled and drove in all three runs Wednesday, helping the Toronto Blue Jays salvage the
final of a three-game series with a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox.

Toronto had lost its previous five games against Boston this season. The Blue Jays closed a 10-game road trip at 7-3.

Marcum (2-1) allowed just two singles to David Ortiz, struck out six and walked one. It's the seventh time in eighth starts this year he's given up three or fewer runs.

Tim Wakefield (0-2) was the tough-luck loser for Boston, which finished a 10-game homestand at 7-3.
