Trailing 1-0 in the top of the fourth inning, Boston took the lead on RBI doubles by Eduardo Nunez and Christian Vazquez.

An inning later, Hanley Ramirez made it 4-1 with a two-run home run to left field, his first long ball of the season. Mookie Betts made it 6-1 with a solo home run in the seventh.

Rafael Devers finished the Red Sox scoring with a run-scoring double in the ninth.

Betts, Ramirez, Devers, Xander Bogaerts and Vazquez each had a pair of hits in the win. Even Andrew Benintendi managed to shake off his early rust and pick up his first hit of the year.
