Xander Bogaerts (pictured) drove in two runs in the top of the 10th inning to snap a 3-3 tie and help the Red Sox beat the Giants 5-3 at AT&T Park.

Junichi Tazawa picked up the win in relief with a scoreless ninth inning; Craig Kimbrel earned his 14th save.

Boston took a 2-0 lead with an RBI double by Chris Young in the second inning and a run-scoring single by Bogaerts in the third.

The Giants cut the lead in half in the bottom of the third on Jarrett Parker's home run off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello. The Giants added two more on a bases-loaded walk and run-scoring double play in the fourth.

David Ortiz tied the game in the seventh on an RBI ground out that scored Jackie Bradley Jr.

Porello went six innings in the no-decision, charged with three runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out six.
