August 21, 2009|Associated Press

TORONTO — J.D. Drew homered twice, Jon Lester pitched eight strong innings and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 8-1, on Thursday to complete a three-game sweep.

Victor Martinez homered for the second straight night for the Red Sox, who have hit two or more homers in six consecutive games, nine of 10 and 15 of 19. Drew hit a leadoff homer to right in the second and a two-run drive to almost the same spot in the third, and finished with four hits. The homers came against rookie left-hander Brett Cecil. It was Drew's seventh multihomer game and first since 2007.
