The Red Sox punched out eighteen hits to back six strong innings from rookie starter Allen Webster in earning his first career win as Boston completed a three-game sweep of the Padres with an 8-2 win at Fenway Park.

Webster (pictured) allowed single runs in the third and fifth innings on five hits and four walks while striking out four. He threw fifty four of his ninety seven pitches for strikes.

Eight Red Sox batters had multi-hit games including Jacoby Ellsbury who extended his hitting streak to fourteen consecutive games with a first-inning single. He also hit his second home run of the season in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his third hit of the day and his first home run since April 7 in Toronto.

Shane Victorino, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes, Ryan Lavarnway and Jose Iglesias each had two hits.

Andrew Bailey pitched a 1-2-3 seventh inning (honest); Alex Wilson (1.1) and Craig Breslow (0.2) closed things out with two scoreless innings.
