If the Toronto Blue Jays ever needed a bounce-back performance, this was the time.

Crushed 14-1 on Monday by the Boston Red Sox -- embarrassed at home for their 13th loss in their last 19 games -- it may have been the low point of the Blue Jay season.

Tuesday though, with a jumbled lineup to go with a healthy dose of J.A. Happ, the Blue Jays climbed off the mat and dealt Boston a 7-3 defeat to snap the Red Sox’s five-game win streak.

As silent as the Toronto offence had been on Monday, scraping together only three hits, it was a different story Tuesday against Jake Peavy and friends at Rogers Centre. The Jays stung Peavy for eight hits -- including home runs by Jose Reyes and Dioner Navarro -- over 6.1 innings, and had 13 hits overall.
