Rick Porcello, who has had to beg and plead for some run support in 2017 was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst...and he needed it, too, as he was charged with all five Chicago runs on seven hits and a pair of walks over 5.1 innings.

Andrew Benintendi led the way with three hits and was on base five times. He also scored twice in the win.

Boston scored four times in the first inning starting with an RBI single by Eduardo Nunez followed by an RBI double by Hanley Ramirez and a two-run homer by rookie Rafael Devers.

Mookie Betts plated two more in the third with his 18th home run of the year. Ramirez singled in a run.

Porcello picked up the win, his first since July 3rd.
