Sox tied franchise record in slugfest

TORONTO -- The Red Sox were able to defeat the Blue Jays in a 13-12 slugfest on Monday without a home run while Toronto went deep twice.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Red Sox tied their franchise record for most runs scored in a one-run victory in which they did not hit a home run.

Boston also had 13-12 victories in 1934 against the St. Louis Browns and in 1950 against the Detroit Tigers.

With 18 hits and no home runs, it was the first time Boston had as many as 18 hits without a homer since it defeated Toronto, 11-9, on July 27, 1999.
