The last time Boston won this many games, your great grandparents were laying out $600 for a brand new Ford Model T.

Manager Alex Cora's lineup had a real Fort Myers spring training look to it, but it was good enough to put up four runs in the seventh inning, including an RBI double by Sam Travis (pictured) and a run-scoring single by Tzu-Wei Lin.

Travis and Lin also homered in the game; it was the first Major League long ball by both.

Chris Sale started for the Red Sox and went 3.1 innings allowing two runs on five hits. He struck out seven and did not walk a batter, throwing 73 pitches before Cora went to the bullpen.

Brock Holt continued his recent hot streak with three hits. Lin, Brandon Phillips, Rafael Devers and Travis each had two.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 42nd save of the year.
