The White Sox had a brief 1-0 lead two pitches into the game on a solo home run by Tim Anderson off Pomeranz in the top of the first.

Boston answered right back in the bottom of the inning on Andrew Benintendi's 13th home run of the year off Chicago's James Shields, which also drove in Brock Holt.

Jackie Bradley Jr. (pictured) hit a two-run shot of his own in the bottom of the second to make it 4-1 Boston.

Pomeranz went 6.1 innings for the win, his fifth in a row and eleventh of the season. He struck out eight and walked just one.

Craig Kimbrel earned his 26th save of the season.
