Henry Owens (pictured) struggled early with a three-run first inning and a four-run third before Boston could push a run across. Owens was charged with seven runs on 10 hits and one walk over six innings in the no-decision. Two of those hits were home runs in the top of the first inning; he gave up three long balls over all. He struck out 10.

The Red Sox chipped away with a run in the third, two in the fourth and another in the fifth. They added two more in the seventh and two in the ninth to tie the game. Xander Bogaerts and Rusney Castillo each hit their fourth home runs of the year. Brock Holt and Travis Shaw led Boston with three hits; Bogaerts and Castillo each had two.
