BOSTON (AP) – Mitch Moreland drove in three runs with a 2-run homer and bases-loaded walk, Alex Verdugo hit two solo shots and Boston’s battered staff rebounded to hold down the Blue Jays 5-3. Moreland gave them a 4-2 edge in the third and the bullpen took over from there. Verdugo also robbed Travis Shaw of a homer with a leaping grab. The Red Sox entered with the AL’s second-worst ERA. Cavan Biggio hit a solo homer for Toronto.
