Cespedes (pictured) hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth inning, his 20th of the season and first at Fenway in a Red Sox uniform, to give the Red Sox a 2-0 lead. The Astros tied the game with single runs in the fifth and seventh innings before Brock Holt gave Boston a 3-2 lead with an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh. The Astros tied the game in the top of the eighth.
Buchholz allowed two runs over seven innings on seven hits and two walks while striking out nine in earning his third straight no-decision.
Dustin Pedroia left the game in the top of the ninth inning with discomfort in his right foot; he had fouled a pitch off it back in the fourth. A post-game scan was negative and Pedroia was listed after the game as day-to-day.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
