Blue Jays 5, Red Sox 0

Blue Jays 5, Red Sox 0

TORONTO — J.A. Happ and three relievers combined on a two-hitter and Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia homered for the Blue Jays. The only hit Happ allowed was a leadoff double by Jacoby Ellsbury in the first. "Happ was dynamite, he really was," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. Rasmus' three-run homer in the sixth hit the facing of the third deck in right-center. "I've hit a few pretty far, but I hit that one pretty good," Rasmus said. "I'm going to say that one's pretty close to the top."
