Boston came all the way back from a 5-1 deficit for the win, their eighth win in their last nine games.

Chris Sale started and went five innings, charged with four runs on seven hits and a pair of walks. He struck out eight on a night where he clearly wasn't sharp.

Trailing 5-1 in the seventh, Mookie Betts hit a one-out triple and came around to score on a single by Andrew Benintendi. Xander Bogaerts doubled a run home, followed by an RBI single by J.D. Martinez.

Jackie Bradley Jr. tripled in the eighth with one out and came in on a single by Rafael Devers.

In the tenth, Marco Hernandez was hit by a pitch with two out, which was followed by the Vazquez game-winning blast.

Brandon Workman was the winner with a scoreless inning of relief.
