By Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) — Adeiny Hechavarria hit a two-run home run, Omar Vizquel had two hits and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.

The game was scoreless until the bottom of the seventh, when Yan Gomes grounded a two-out single up the middle against Jon Lester (9-12), just the second hit for the Blue Jays.

Rajai Davis came on as a pinch runner and stole second, then scored on Vizquel's single to center. The base hit was Vizquel's 2,782nd, matching him with Jesse Burkett for 42nd on the all-time list and leaving him just one behind Hall of Fame slugger Babe Ruth.

Hechavarria hit Lester's next pitch into the second deck in left, just his second career home run.

Brandon Lyon (3-0) pitched 2-3 of an inning for the win. Darren Oliver worked the eighth and Casey Janssen finished.
