Posted: Updated:

TORONTO (AP) - Mauro Gomez hit a tiebreaking triple in the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox beat Toronto 8-5 on Friday night, snapping their six-game losing streak against the Blue Jays.

Boston had lost six of seven overall coming in, but bounced back after falling behind 3-0 and later blowing a 5-3 lead.

Ryan Lavarnway hit a three-run homer and finished with four RBIs for the Red Sox. Daniel Nava had a two-run single and made a fantastic diving catch in left field in the eighth to preserve a 5-all tie.

Chris Carpenter (1-0) got two outs for his first major league win and Andrew Bailey closed it out for his third save in four chances.
