Boston fell behind 2-0 in the bottom of the second on a two-run homer by Devon Travis off Drew Pomeranz who would last just 4.2 innings. Pomeranz allowed just four hits but walked five in the no-decision outing.
J.D. Martinez (pictured) had a big night with an RBI single in the fourth and a three-run homer, his 34th, in the top of the eighth inning. He led the Red Sox with three hits.
Craig Kimbrel was the winner in relief courtesy of a blown save, allowing a game-tying home run in the ninth to Justin Smoak. Moreland drove in three with his 14th home run of the year and JBJ completed the scoring with a two-run shot of his own.
The win was the fifth in a row for the Red Sox who have won 9 or 10, 24 of their last 29 and have 80 wins on the season.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
