Hanley Ramirez scorched a two-out, two-RBI double in the top of the 13th inning as the Red Sox beat the Miami Marlins 4-2 Tuesday night. It was Boston's fifth straight win and gave the team a 5-1 start to the 2018 season.

With two out and Mookie Betts at second, Miami reliever Tayron Guerrero fell behind the struggling Andrew Benintendi. With first base open, manager Don Mattingly opted to intentionally walk Benintendi to get to Ramirez (pictured) who delivered his second hit of the game, driving in both runners.

Heath Hembree was the winner in relief tossing two scoreless innings. Matt Barnes allowed his first run of the season and blew his first save in the process.

Chris Sale started and once again, a Boston starter delivered. He allowed one run on five hits over five innings while striking out six and not walking a batter.

In addition to Benintendi, Ramirez and Rafael Devers each had two hits.
