Sox crawling back

TORONTO – The Red Sox have come back a bit here against Doc Halladay.

J.D. Drew’s seventh-inning solo shot made it a 7-3 game and in the eighth. David Ortiz singled to center to drive in Kevin Youkilis, who had tripled after Vernon Wells and John McDonald collided while going after the soft fly in medium center. Both players were shaken up but remained in the game.

Halladay just induced a double-play grounder by Manny Ramirez to get out of the eighth.
