Red Sox 6, Blue Jays 0, End 2: Boston Jump On Luis Perez Early

The Red Sox have jumped all over Luis Perez and the Blue Jays, scoring six runs in the first two innings.

The battering of Perez started immediately, as Jacoby Ellsbury led the game off with a double, then scored when Adrian Gonzalez' sky-high pop up managed to drop between two defenders. Kevin Youkilis walked, and David Ortiz beat the shift to score Gonzalez. Marco Scutaro added a run on another single, and Carl Crawford brought in a fourth run on a double down the line in right.

The scoring didn't stop there, either. After Jon Lester worked around a leadoff single, striking Jose Bautista out in the process, the Sox added two more when Jacoby Ellsbury walked, Adrian Gonzalez singled, and Kevin Youkilis doubled. He would be caught in the rundown between second and third, but by this point it's not looking like runs are going to be at a premium for the Sox.
