Drew Pomeranz went six innings for his 16th win of the year, tying him with Chris Sale for the team lead.

Trailing 1-0 in the fifth inning, the Red Sox tied the game on Christian Vazquez's fifth home run of the year.

Boston scored twice in the sixth on RBI doubles by Benintendi (pictured) and Mitch Moreland and then padded the lead with two more runs in the seventh on a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly and a Benintendi run-scoring single.

The Red Sox head out for their final road trip of the season. They play three games each against the Rays, Orioles and Reds before coming back for the final home stand of the year.
