Synder pitched four strong innings and made it through the fifth fairly unscathed. He had a leg cramp while warming up for the sixth. Hansen, Delcarmen and Timlin finished up.
Boston whacked five home runs off Moyer (Ortiz, Gonzalez, Varitek, Youkilis and Ramirez); indeed, Moyer allowed six hits in 4.1 innings: 5 HR and one double.
Toronto battered Jaret Wright for four runs in the first inning and beat New York 7-3. ... The Red Sox led the Yankees by 3.5 games. The Jays are still 5.5 back.
Kyle Snyder (10.03) / Jamie Moyer (3.75), 10 PM
It's the first West Coast trip of the year: three games each in Seattle and Oakland.
The Yankees (Wright) continue their series tonight in Toronto (Burnett).
