    The Toronto Blue Jays will look to rebound from a disastrous 14-1 loss as they host the Boston Red Sox in the second game of a four-game set tonight at Rogers Centre. Bostons bats exploded in Mondays opener, as David Ortiz belted a pair of two-run homers, Stephen Drew homered and drove in four runs and the Red Sox pummeled the Blue Jays, 14-1. The Blue Jays, fresh off a series win against the Texas Rangers, got a run via consecutive doubles from Erik Kratz and Juan Francisco in the third inning. Drew Hutchison (6-9) did not make it out of the top half of the third en route to his fifth loss in his last six starts. "It was a bad night," Hutchison said. "I didnt give us a chance to win." Hoping for similar support tonight the Red Sox will rely on righty Jake Peavy, whose only win this season came against the Jays. Hes dropped eight decisions since that win back on April 25 and is a miserable 1-8 on the year with a 4.59 ERA. "You kind of put that aside. Hes worked deep into games. Hes pitched low-run games. A number of days hes pitched on the wrong day, and days we havent supported him with a lot of offense," Farrell said. "But more importantly, hes done a very good job of separating some tough luck situations ... and not letting it affect his performance." Toronto, meanwhile, will hand the ball to lefty J.A. Happ, who is 7-5 with a 4.91 ERA. Happ hasnt started since giving up five runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Angels back on July 7, but pitched in relief on July 12 against Tampa, surrendering two runs in just two-thirds of an inning. Happ is 2-2 in six games (5 starts) versus the Red Sox with a 5.33 ERA. Despite Mondays shellacking Toronto has won four of its seven meetings with the Red Sox this season. Mike Napoli went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored, while Jackie Bradley Jr. and Christian Vazquez each had two RBI for the surging Red Sox, winners in eight of their last nine. "We had a good offensive approach up and down the lineup," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "It was a well played game in all phases." Bostons season-high output overshadowed a terrific outing from John Lackey (11-6), who did his part with seven innings of one-run, two-hit ball.
