The Red Sox scored four times in the bottom of the eighth inning, snapping a 2-2 tie, as they beat the Cubs 6-2 at Fenway Park on Sunday night.
Boston's Eduardo Rodriguez and Kyle Hendricks were hooked up in a pitcher's duel through the first six innings. ERod, in fact, had a 2-1 lead when he left the mound after striking out Wilson Contreras to end the sixth.

Boston scored twice in the bottom of the first inning on Hanley Ramirez's (pictured) third home run of the year and second in as many days, driving in Andrew Benintendi.
With the score tied at two in the bottom of the eighth, the Red Sox loaded the bases on singles by Marco Hernandez, Xander Bogaerts, and Benintendi. Hernandez came across on a one-out wild pitch, followed by a walk to Ramirez to re-load the bases.

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).
