TORONTO (AP) - The Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 11-7 last night in extra innings. Mike Napoli and Allen Craig both homered in a seven-run 11th inning, and Dustin Pedroia homered and had four RBIs. Boston broke away from a 4-all tie for its second straight victory following an eight-game losing streak.

TORONTO (AP) - Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was out of the lineup last night for the second straight game with a sore right foot. Ortiz left Sunday's game against Seattle in the sixth, two innings after fouling a ball off his foot. The veteran slugger is batting .265 with 30 home runs, the fifth highest total in the majors.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have addressed a need to upgrade their struggling offensive line by obtaining six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins from the New England Patriots for tight end Tim Wright and a draft pick. The deal comes less than 24 hours after the Bucs met with Richie Incognito to try to determine if one of the central figures in the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal might be an answer to their problems at guard.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - U.S. World Cup star Jermaine Jones is now a member of the New England Revolution. The Revolution and the Chicago Fire both wanted the midfielder.

CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Landon Donovan says he will make his final appearance for the U.S. national team October 10th in a friendly against Ecuador at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut. Donovan is the top scorer in U.S. history with 57 goals and 58 assists in 156 appearances, but he wasn't chosen for his fourth World Cup roster earlier this summer by coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts judge has granted a request by former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to suppress evidence from two cellphones and three iPads taken from his home in a search during a 2013 murder investigation.
