Ortiz hits 3-run HR as Red Sox outslug Blue Jays 11-8

TORONTO (AP) - David Ortiz hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Hanley Ramirez also connected, and the Boston Red Sox outslugged Toronto 11-8 Sunday, reclaiming a two-game lead over the Blue Jays in the AL East.
 
Ortiz put Boston up 10-8 with a drive off Joaquin Benoit. It was his 41st career home run at Rogers Centre, his highest total at any road stadium.
 
With his 535th career homer, Ortiz moved past Jimmie Foxx into sole possession of 18th place on baseball's career list. Mickey Mantle (536) is 17th.
 
Edwin Encarnacion homered twice and Troy Tulowitzki hit his third career grand slam, but the Blue Jays couldn't force a tie in the standings.
