TORONTO — David Ortiz hit the 452nd and 453rd home runs of his career to move past Boston great Carl Yastrzemski into 36th place on the all-time list as the Red Sox won their fifth straight game July 21st with a resounding 14-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Ortiz matched Yastrzemski with a two-run blast to center off left-hander Brad Mills in the fourth, then broke the short-lived tie with another two-run shot off Mills in the fifth, his 21st and 22nd homers of the season.

It was the third multi-homer game of the season for Ortiz and the 44th of his career.

Mike Napoli followed Ortiz’s second shot with his 12th homer, the fourth time this season Boston has gone back-to-back.
