The win was Boston's 3rd in a row, and seventh out of their last ten games as the Red Sox became the first team to 25 wins.

Martin Perez (pictured) was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst, going six innings for his first win of the year. He scattered three hits and struck out five while walking four.

Verdugo's fifth home run of the year gave Boston an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first.

Bogaerts hit his ninth of the year with two on in the fifth, and Devers went yard in the seventh with a solo blast, his 10th of the season.

Franchy Cordero had a pair of RBI doubles, and Bobby Dalbec also drove in a pair with his sixth double of the season.
