Red Sox Rally: The Red Sox scored five runs in the seventh to tie it. David Ross homered and Xander Bogaerts, Daniel Nava, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli stroked RBI singles.

Jackie Heating Up: Jackie Bradley Jr. (2 for 4) worked an 11-pitch walk for his longest career plate appearance. He also made a jumping catch and has a hit in 10 of his past 13 games.

Ortiz’s Milestone: David Ortiz went 4 for 5, including stroking the 1,708 hit of his Sox career to pass Harry Hooper for seventh most hits in club history.
