The Red Sox pounded out thirteen hits. David Ortiz and Xander Bogaerts led the Boston offense with three hits apiece. Rusney Castillo hit his second home run of the season.

Steven Wright was the beneficiary of all the offense. He went seven innings in earning his fourth win of the year. He allowed just two runs on six hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight.

The big inning for the Red Sox was a 4-run sixth in which they batted around.

Chicago took an early 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the first inning and with Sale on the mound the game already had the feel of one that had already gotten away.

Wright settled down, Ortiz cut the lead in half with an RBI double in the bottom of the inning, and that sound you heard was Fenway with a collective exhale.
