Eduardo Rodriguez (pictured) started for Boston, going six innings. He allowed four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven. His fastball showed good life; he consistently hit 95-96 MPH on the Fenway radar gun.

The White Sox took an early 2-0 lead on a run-scoring double by Melky Cabrera in the first inning and an error by Travis Shaw in the third.

The Red Sox responded with a four-run third inning highlighted by RBI singles by Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz, and Jackie Bradley Jr.

Bogaerts finished the game with a team-high three hits. Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia each had two.

Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run in the sixth inning, his sixth long ball of the year.
