Nick Pivetta served up another strong starting performance for Boston, pitching into the seventh inning allowing two runs on four hits without issuing a walk. He struck out seven before giving way to Matt Andriese.

Andriese surrendered the lead but ultimately got the win thanks to Dalbec's (pictured) fourth home run of the season.

Adam Ottavino and Matt Barnes pitched the eighth and ninth inning respectively, combining for five strikeouts.

Hunter Renfroe provided the Red Sox with an early 2-0 lead with his fifth home run. He and Christian Vazquez each had a pair of hits in the win.

Boston is the first team in the majors to 24 wins.
