Pomeranz (pictured) continues to be an enigma - this was the fifth time in twelve starts that he's failed to finish the fifth inning. He went just 4.1 innings on Sunday allowing six runs on eight hits and a pair of walks as his record fell to 6-4.

Heath Hembree gave up a grand slam to Justin Upton in the fifth.

Boston scored single runs in the first, third and sixth innings on an RBI single by Hanley Ramirez, a run-scoring double by Dustin Pedroia, and a an RBI single by Christian Vazquez respectively.

Mookie Betts, Pedroia, Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. each had two hits in the loss for the Red Sox.
