Tellez Homers Twice, Blue Jays Pay Back Red Sox Tuesday


TORONTO (AP) — Rowdy Tellez had two homers and five RBIs and Randal Grichuk also homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 10-3 on Tuesday night.

Tellez got the Blue Jays on the board in the fourth inning with his seventh home run of the season, a two-run shot off the third-deck façade above right field.

One pitch later, Grichuk clubbed a solo shot over the left-field fence for his eighth of the year to pad Toronto’s lead. It was the second time this year that Toronto has hit back-to-back home runs.

On Tellez’s next time up at the plate one inning later, he drove a towering three-run home run over the right-center-field fence. The three home runs tied a Toronto season high.
