Mookie Betts (pictured) slammed a three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning to snap a 1-1 tie and lift the Red Sox to a 4-1 win over the Brewers at Miller Field on Thursday afternoon.

The win went to Craig Kimbrel who powered through 1.2 innings of relief striking out five in the process.

Eduardo Rodriguez started for Boston, going six strong innings. He allowed the lone Milwaukee run on three hits. He struck out five and did not walk a batter.

Betts scored the first run of the day for the Red Sox in the top of the first inning on a fielding error by Jesus Aguilar. He, Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts each had two hits.
