TORONTO – The Red Sox closed out their series in Toronto with a 15-hit attack Thursday afternoon in a 8-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

Steve Pearce turned in a much-needed 3-for-5 afternoon. The reigning World Series MVP capped off the scoring for Boston with a two-run home run in the ninth inning.

Pearce drove in three runs in the win.

Every hitter in the Red Sox lineup picked up at least one hit. Xander Bogaerts, Rafael Devers, Eduardo Nunez, and Jackie Bradley Jr. all had two-hit games.

Devers drove in two runs after part of a 2-for-5 effort and saw his batting average rise to .317.

Spot-starter Ryan Weber gave the Red Sox a strong performance, allowing one run over six innings of work. The right-hander struck out four batters and allowed only three hits. He did not issue a walk.

The Red Sox now head to Houston for a three-game series with the Astros starting Friday night. Chris Sale will take the ball against former Sox southpaw Wade Miley.
