       BOSTON (AP) _ David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr. homered to lead the AL East champion Boston Red Sox to a 5-2 victory over the last-place Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday in the regular-season finale at Fenway Park.


        Felix Doubront (11-6) pitched seven strong innings in his last start before moving to the bullpen for the playoffs. The Red Sox clinched the division title on Friday and, with 95 wins, have the lead in the race for home-field advantage through the AL playoffs.         Koji Uehara pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save.


        Kevin Pillar homered and added an RBI single for Toronto. Reigning NL Cy Young-winner R.A. Dickey (13-13) allowed five runs on six hits and a walk, with a season-high 11 strikeouts in his third complete game of the season.
