The win was the sixth in a row for Boston and gave the Sox a sweep of the four-game series with Chicago.
The Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on solo home runs by Eduardo Rodriguez and Young (pictured).
After the White Sox scored three in the top of the second off Fister, Young tied the game in the bottom of the third with an RBI double that drove in Andrew Benintendi. Young completed the Boston scoring in the bottom of the fifth with a three-run shot off the screen of the Fisk Pole in left.
Aside from a couple of hiccups in that second inning, Fister pitched well, scattering eight hits over 6.1 innings. He struck out seven and didn't walk anyone.
Addison Reed and Matt Barnes provided a scoreless bridge to Craig Kimbrel in the ninth. Kimbrel gave up a lead-off single before striking out a pair and getting a ground out to secure his 27th save of the year.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
