PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Two same-day call-ups helped the San Francisco Giants stay ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
David Ortiz hit the 452nd and 453rd home runs of his career, moving past Boston great Carl Yastrzemski into 36th place on the all-time list, and the Red Sox won their fifth straight game Monday night, routing the Toronto Blue Jays 14-1. Ortiz matched Yastrzemski with a two-run blast to center off left-hander Brad Mills in the fourth, then broke the short-lived tie with another two-run shot off Mills in the fifth, his 21st and 22nd homers of the season. Ortiz's first homer ended his 0-for-18 skid against Toronto and an 0-for-11 slump overall. Mike Napoli followed Ortiz's second shot with his 12th homer, the fourth time this season Boston has gone back-to-back.
