Chris Sale (pictured) was the beneficiary of the offensive onslaught, going 7.1 innings to earn his fifth win of the year.
Sale "only" struck out six, ending his consecutive game streak of ten-plus strikeouts.
Boston took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning on an RBI single by Mookie Betts.
Texas tied the game in the top of the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Elvis Andrus and added two more runs in the fifth on a solo home run by Mike Napoli and a run-scoring single by Joey Gallo.
The Red Sox used a wild pitch, a walk, a sacrifice fly and RBI single by Mitch Moreland, Josh Rutledge, and Dustin Pedroia to score seven times in the seventh and added an additional run on another Betts RBI single.
Betts, Xander Bogaerts and rookie Sam Travis, making his major league debut, each had two hits for Boston.
Boston has scored 32 runs in the last three games with a team batting average of better than .360.

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).
