BOSTON -- Melky Cabrera homered from both sides of the plate and drove in five runs, R.A. Dickey pithed three-hit ball for seven innings and the Toronto Blue Jays romped past the Boston Red Sox 14-1 on Monday night.

The Blue Jays won for the sixth time in seven games while the Red Sox lost one day after stopping a five-game slide that began in Toronto with three losses.

Cabrera homered into Boston's bullpen in right field after Jose Reyes led off the game with a walk. Cabrera made it 9-0 in a nine-run sixth with a three-run homer to left, his 14th of the season.

Ryan Goins had four hits and four RBIs for Toronto.

Dickey (9-10) had a season-high 10 strikeouts, allowed a run and walked one as he won for the third time in 10 starts. But against the Red Sox he's 3-0 with 21 strikeouts and two walks this season.

Clay Buchholz (5-7) left the game after allowing the first three batters to reach in the sixth with one run scoring on a double by Goins. Felix Doubront came in and faced 10 batters, allowing six runs, six hits and two walks. He got his only outs on a sacrifice fly and a forceout.

Everyone in the Blue Jays' lineup except Reyes scored in the sixth, and Munenori Kawasaki scored twice. Toronto's 14 runs matched its season-high against Cincinnati on June 20.

Goins had given the Blue Jays a 4-0 lead with a two-run double in the fourth.

Dickey retired the first six batters and struck out at least one in each of his seven innings. He allowed a double in the third to Stephen Drew, an infield single in the fifth to Shane Victorino and an RBI single in the sixth by David Ortiz that made it 13-1.

Freddie Prinze, Jr. believes alcohol made Kiefer Sutherland impossible to deal with on the set of "24" ... but a key Fox source tells TMZ Freddie's claims are BS.

Sources connected with Freddie tell TMZ ... the actor claims Kiefer would regularly show up on set drunk ... sitting in his trailer often for hours, as everyone waited.  The sources say it messed with the lives of the family of cast and crew.

Freddie, we're told, claims Kiefer was temperamental and got people fired he didn't like, yet "24" producers consistently cow-towed to him ... as one source put it, "All they did was keep rewarding him."

Our sources claim Freddie was groomed to take over the series but it became such a nightmare for him he bailed.

Keifer's rep tells TMZ, "Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances."   The rep adds, "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."

A Fox official tells TMZ ... Kiefer was "nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew."  The honcho adds, "It's so out of left field, 5 years later."

The official goes on, "We wouldn't have done another '24' if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described."

{allcanada} Lacroix wins gold at Commonwealth Games

GLASGOW — Audrey Lacroix wasn’t sure she would ever swim competitively again, let alone experience a moment like the one she had Monday night.

The Canadian butterfly specialist won gold in the women’s 200-metre final at the Commonwealth Games to complete a remarkable comeback after being diagnosed with a career-threatening anxiety disorder in 2011.

Lacroix was having a difficult time in the leadup to the London Olympics and found herself constantly on edge as the pressure to make the team mounted following a string of poor results.

The Pont-Rouge, Que., native eventually sought help, and it started her on a path to the top of the podium at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre.

“When I was diagnosed with anxiety, I wasn’t sure if I could ever go in the (starting) blocks again,” said the 30-year-old Lacroix. “I took it step by step. I did one race and then I made the Olympic team.

“Now to be able to race some of the fastest girls in the world and win is just so incredible. I know how hard it was to get back to this level so now I appreciate it even more.”

Lacroix said she seriously contemplated quitting the sport in her darkest moments, but decided to continue after lengthy discussions with coaches, officials and team doctors.

“The main goal was for me to be healthy and swimming at that level, it’s not for everybody, and you need to be healthy to do it,” said the two-time Olympian. “Everybody was fine with whichever decision I took.”

Lacroix touched the wall first in a time of two minutes 7.61 seconds on Monday, but initially wasn’t sure if she had done enough to get her first gold at the Commonwealth Games.

“I was really confused. For some reason I couldn’t see the board — I couldn’t see my name or my time,” she said. “I turned and I saw that there was one light on my block, so that my meant I won. I also had the TV camera in my face so that was a pretty good cue.”

Aimee Willmott of England was second in 2:08.07, while Australia’s Maddie Groves captured bronze in 2:08.44.

Katerine Savard — who won the 100-metre butterfly earlier in the competition — led for the first 100 metres, but the Pont-Rouge native faded late and finished eight.

Lacroix won bronze in the 100-metre butterfly at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and took home a silver in the 200-metre event four years ago. She was fifth halfway through Monday’s race and third with 50 metres to go before kicking things into another gear to bring home Canada’s third gold medal in the pool.
