TORONTO -- The game could have been categorized as "strange." But David Ortiz went ahead and made it "same old, same old."

Ortiz sent a pitch from Toronto's Josh Towers to center for a two-run homer in the eighth inning that gave the Red Sox a 5-3 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday at the Rogers Centre.

The blast was the 42nd of the season for Ortiz, which is tops in the American League and also established a new career high for the slugger. It was also the fourth homer in the last three games against Toronto and the second game-deciding shot for Ortiz. On Monday, Ortiz hit game-winner in the 11th inning.

While game-winning home runs have become the norm for Ortiz, the two-run blast that Tony Graffanino hit in the fifth inning was far from usual.

After Gabe Kapler reached on an error, Graffanino sent an offering from Towers into the left-field bullpen to give the Red Sox a 3-2 lead. Kapler began sprinting around the bases while the ball was still in flight.

Kapler stumbled a few steps past second base and fell facefirst into the turf. The center fielder had to be carted off the field after rupturing his left Achilles tendon. Graffanino was stuck standing on second base until Boston called infielder Alejandro Machado to pinch-run for Kapler. Machado finished Kapler's jog to home plate and scored his first Major League run.

David Wells (13-7) earned his fourth win in his last five starts after allowing three runs on seven hits across seven innings. Wells gave up two RBI singles to Shea Hillenbrand and an RBI double to Frank Menechino.

The win gave Boston (85-60) its first series on the road since taking two of three from Tampa Bay on July 25-27.

TORONTO -- Gabe Kapler began his sprint around the bases when second baseman Tony Graffanino belted a two-run home run in the fifth inning against Toronto on Wednesday. Kapler's trip ended abruptly a few steps beyond second base, though.

Kapler was running hard toward second because it was still in doubt whether the ball would clear the left-field wall, when he stumbled and fell facefirst into the turf. The center fielder appeared to suffer a foot injury and had to be carted off the field several minutes later.

According to Red Sox officials, Kapler suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon and was receiving treatment in the team's clubhouse.

Graffanino stood on second base while Kapler remained down about halfway to third base, while Boston trainer Jim Rowe and manager Terry Francona assisted him. Red Sox infielder Alejandro Machado came in as a pinch-runner.

Machado continued Kapler's run around the bases and scored the first run of his Major League career. Machado remained in the game as Boston's center fielder.

The home run gave the Red Sox a 3-2 lead.

According to baseball's rule book, "if an accident to a runner is such as to prevent him from proceeding to a base to which he is entitled, as on a home run hit out of the playing field, or an award of one or more bases, a substitute runner shall be permitted to complete the play."
