MLB: Toronto 8, Boston 7

Adam Lind had three home runs and four RBI Tuesday to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to an 8-7 win over the Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox could have clinched the American League wild-card berth with a win, as their magic number is one.

Lind had his first career three-homer game, hitting one in the first, fifth and seventh innings. Jose Bautista and Aaron Hill also homered and Kevin Millar went 3-for-4 with an RBI for Toronto, which has won five in a row and eight of nine.

Ricky Romero (13-9) got the win after limiting the Red Sox to two runs on seven hits in five innings.

Clay Buchholz (7-4) took the loss after giving up seven runs on eight hits in five innings.

J.D. Drew went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer for Boston, which has lost five in a row.
