Blue Jays 14, Red Sox 1

BOSTON — Melky Cabrera homered from both sides of the plate and drove in five runs, R.A. Dickey pitched seven three-hit innings and the Blue Jays romped past the Red Sox 14-1 on Monday night.

Toronto won for the sixth time in seven games. Boston lost one day after stopping a five-game slide that began in Toronto with three losses and continued with a series loss to the Rays.

Cabrera homered into Boston's bullpen in rightfield after Jose Reyes led off the game with a walk. Cabrera made it 9-0 in a nine-run sixth with a three-run homer to left.

Ryan Goins had four hits and four RBIs for Toronto.

Dickey had a season-high 10 strikeouts as he won for the third time in 10 starts. Against the Red Sox he's 3-0 with 21 strikeouts and two walks this season.

Clay Buchholz left the game after allowing the first three batters to reach in the sixth with one run scoring on a double by Goins. Felix Doubront came in and faced 10 batters, allowing six runs, six hits and two walks. He got his only outs on a sacrifice fly and a forceout.

Everyone in the Blue Jays' lineup except Reyes scored in the sixth, and Munenori Kawasaki scored twice.
