When the offense explodes for 14 runs on 18 hits it's easy to overlook the pitcher. But John Lackey did his job, too.
In the first five games since the All-Star break, it's as though a switch has been flipped for the Red Sox offense.
The Sox bash out a season-high 18 hits and throttle the Toronto Blue Jays, 14-1 for their eighth win in the last nine games.
Felix Doubront, who was shipped to the bullpen in late June, hasn't gotten a lot of work of late. He last appeared on July 7, prior to the break.
Daniel Nava will be in left field to start the series against the Blue Jays, as he continues to wield a hot bat for the Red Sox.
