Rafael Devers started the Boston scoring with a single to drive in Andrew Benintendi in the bottom of the first inning.

Devers also started a 5-4-3 triple play in the top of the fourth. Boston's last triple play was August 16, 2011.

Porcello (pictured) picked up his third consecutive win, allowing three St. Louis runs on eight hits and a pair of walks. He struck out six and did not allow a home run for the first time in his last six starts dating back to July 8th.

Every Red Sox starter had at least one hit with Xander Bogaerts leading the team with three.

The Boston hit parade took off in the fifth inning with Hanley Ramirez doubling in a pair, RBI singles by Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland, a two-RBI double by Sandy Leon, and singles by Jackie Bradley Jr. and Eduardo Nunez.
