Xander Bogaerts' bases-clearing single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning proved to be the difference as the Red Sox came from behind to beat the Marlins 4-3 at Fenway Park on Monday night.
The Marlins had taken a 3-1 lead in the top of the seventh inning on an RBI single by Cole Gillespie and a run-scoring double by Christian Yellich off Red Sox starting pitcher Wade Miley.
Miley went 6.2 in the no-decision allowing 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out a season-high 9.
Junichi Tazawa got the win in relief with 1.1 scoreless innings. Koji Uehara notched his 20th save of the year. He's converted ten straight save opportunities.
Rookie Travis Shaw, playing first base, led the Red Sox with three hits, the first base hits of his career.

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).
