Giles (0-3) gave up five runs on four hits, including both home runs, and saw his ERA balloon to 6.21.

Kimbrel (3-1) gave up a solo homer to Justin Smoak with one out in the ninth, tying the game at 5.

Blue Jays: RHP Aaron Sanchez (right index finger) allowed four runs and five hits in three innings in a rehab start for Toronto's rookie-level Gulf Coast League team. He will have missed two starts when he returns to the Red Sox rotation and pitches in Baltimore. The go-ahead blast, Martinez's major league-leading 34th of the season, was the highlight of a four-RBI night for Boston's DH. Martinez finished 3 for 5 with four RBIs.

Drew Pomeranz labored again, tossing 4 2/3 innings of two-run ball. Betts, Holt and Leon Culberson in 1943 are the only Red Sox to cycle from the leadoff spot.

Blue Jays righty Marcus Stroman delivered a strong seven innings.

Sale last pitched on July 27, tossing six scoreless innings and allowing three hits and two walks while striking out 10 in a no-decision against the Minnesota Twins. Steve Pearce proved himself a Yankee slayer - at least for a weekend - with four home runs.

Travis opened the scoring for the Blue Jays in the third inning by hitting a two-run home run off Pomeranz.

Craig Kimbrel felt bad about making his Boston Red Sox teammates play an additional inning.

It it not clear how many of its 59 shops or 17,000 staff employed by the chain and its concession holders would be affected. House of Fraser assured that its offices and stores will continue trading as normal while they look to reach a deal.

Jason Vargas took the loss for the Mets, allowing three runs and three hits while failing to get out of the fifth inning.

The Jays would add to their lead in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Teoscar Hernandez.

Down 3-1, the Red Sox loaded the bases in the eighth with one out. That brought Martinez up with two outs and two on, setting up his go-ahead home run off the left field foul pole. The closer fell behind Smoak and grooved a fastball down the middle on a 3-0 count. Moreland hit a three-run home run before Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a two-run shot to knock Giles out of the game.

Boston scored an unearned run in the fourth.

Andrew Benintendi walked, and Moreland hit his 14th homer of the season.

J.D. Martinez, he of 33 home runs and 93 RBI, leads a team of stars and misfits alike.

The lead was quickly surrendered and turned into a 10-7 win for the visiting Boston Red Sox.

The lefty is 11-4 with a 2.04 ERA in 22 starts this season for Boston.
