Jackie Bradley Jr.'s 2-out, 2-RBI double into the right field corner in the top of the 14th inning proved to be the decisive hit as the Red Sox topped Chicago 6-4 at U.S. Cellular Field. The victory snapped a 3-game Boston losing streak.

The Red Sox managed only 6 hits over the 14 innings - Bradley's double was the first Boston hit to leave the infield since the 1st inning - but they received 15 walks from a combined 9 White Sox pitchers (one of them was utility infielder Leury Garcia in the 14th) and added 3 sacrifice flies in the win.

Dustin Pedroia, back in the starting lineup, led the game off with a double and came around to score on a single by Xander Bogaerts; it marked the first time the Red Sox scored in the 1st inning this year.

Clay Buchholz started for Boston going 6 innings. He was charged with 3 Chicago runs on 6 hits and 2 walks while striking out 6. He was hurt by 2 Boston errors in the 1st inning that allowed the White Sox to tie the score.
