Rick Porcello (pictured) started for the Red Sox going six innings in a no-decision. He allowed three runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five.

Boston scored first with a pair of runs in the second inning on an RBI double by Alejandro De Aza and a sacrifice fly by Jackie Bradley Jr.

Tampa cut the lead in half in the bottom of the inning with an RBI double by Marc Krauss.

Boston pushed the lead to 3-1 in the fourth on - of all things - a steal of home by...wait for it...Mike Napoli.


OK...so it was part of a double steal. Either way, the run scored.

Tampa tied the game in the six off of Porcello on a sacrifice fly and a wild pitch.

Mookie Betts led off the tenth with a double and came home on the single by Holt.

Koji Uehara secured his fifteenth save of the year with a clean tenth inning.
