The Red Sox got contributions across the board in a 6-3 come-from-behind win over the Diamondbacks at Fenway Park on Saturday night.

Clay Buchholz, making a spot start, went 4.1 innings holding Arizona to three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out one. Certainly nothing to make you want him back on the mound in five days, but face it - it could have been a LOT worse given what we've seen from him this year.

Brad Ziegler technically didn't get credit for the save (that went to Craig Kimbrel with a 1-2-3 ninth), but he certainly did his part coming into a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the top of the eighth and striking out the side.

Dustin Pedroia started the Boston scoring with an RBI single to drive in Brock Holt (pictured) in the bottom of the third.

After the D-backs took a 3-1 lead in the fifth, Boston scored three times on a solo home run by Sandy Leon, Andrew Benintendi's RBI double, and a run-scoring single by Mookie Betts.

Holt added to the lead with his sixth home run of the year in the bottom of the sixth, driving in Leon.

Fernando Abad finished things up the ninth inning, allowing one run.
