TORONTO — Roy Halladay pitched a six-hitter to win for the first time since June 7, and Rod Barajas drove in three runs, leading the Toronto Blue Jays past the Boston Red Sox, 3-1, Sunday.

Halladay (11-3) turned in a vintage performance. He struck out six and walked none, lowering his earned-run average to 2.73. He retired his final 11 batters in his 44th complete game and fourth this season.

"We're a team that, a lot of the time, works counts and takes pitches," Boston slugger Jason Bay said. "There's a few guys that's not really conducive for, and [Halladay] is one of them. You look at his strike-to-ball ratio and it's ridiculous. It's one of those things where you're not going to wait him out and work a walk."
