Kyle Drabek won for the first time since June, Edwin Encarnacion homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Tuesday night. Drabek (1-0) struggled in two starts against Boston last season, allowing 12 runs and 15 hits and taking the loss in a 14-1 home defeat on June 12, his last start before being demoted to Triple-A. The right-hander was much sharper this time, giving up one run and three hits in 5 1/3 innings and setting down nine straight in one stretch. He walked three and struck out four to help drop the Red Sox to 1-4, another slow start for a team that opened last season with six straight losses.
