San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Felix Doubront tossed eight outstanding innings and received a wealth of offensive support as the Boston Red Sox battered the San Francisco Giants, 12-1, to wrap up a three-game interleague series.

Doubront (9-6) bounced back from two straight shaky starts to limit the Giants to a run on five hits and a walk, with the effort helping the Red Sox take two of the set's three meetings following four losses in a five-game span.

Stephen Drew belted a three-run homer and Will Middlebrooks had a two-run shot for Boston, while Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each contributed two- RBI singles to the rout. Jacoby Ellsbury and Shane Victorino collected three hits apiece and combined to score three runs.

Making his first start since July 30, Barry Zito (4-9) lasted just 3 2/3 innings and was roughed up for six runs on seven hits.

Joaquin Arias finished 2-for-3 for San Francisco and accounted for the Giants' lone run with a solo homer in the second inning.
