Red Sox

Final: Red Sox 6, White Sox 5

The Red Sox posted their second walk-off win in the last four days with a 6-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

Andrew Benintendi started the inning with a double into the right field corner, moved to third on a groundout to the right side, and after two intentional walks filled the bases, Marco Hernandez singled to the shortstop hole.

The Sox had not led until the winning run scored.

Trailing 5-3 in the seventh, Mookie Betts homered in the bottom of the inning and Eduardo Nunez tied the game an inning later with an RBI single into left, delivering pinch-runner Hernandez

Eduardo Rodriguez was charged with five runs in 6.1 innings

WHO: Red Sox vs. Chicago White Sox
WHEN: 7:10 p.m.
WHERE: Fenway Park
STARTING PITCHERS: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (8-4, 4.71) vs. RHP Lucas Giolito (10-2, 2.74)


9:52  Unusual step here with Alex Cora lifting Colten Brewer in the middle of an at-bat against Jon Jay. Lefty Josh Taylor on.

9:40 Familiar story: Sox can't come through with the big hit when needed. A two-out double by Devers goes to waste. Sox are 1-for-7 with RISP.

9:31 Homer by Mookie Betts to leadoff the bottom of the seventh -- a missile to the CF bleachers -- brings the Sox to within a run.

9:18 Rodriguez stays an inning too long and gives back the lead after the Sox tied the game in the previous inning -- a run-scoring single to Yonder Alonso, hitting .176 before tonight -- scores Eloy Jimenez from second.

9:10  Sox tie it thanks to a bases-loaded walk to Chavis, but leave the bases loaded as Eduardo Nunez goes down swinging against reliever Evan Marshall.

8:58  Xander Bogaerts saw his streak of consecutive games with a double snapped at seven Sunday. So, tonight, he starts another one, lashing a ball into the left field corner, sending Devers to third.

8:48  A pitch to Jose Abreu is almost identical to the one thrown to Jimenez four innings earlier -- and is similarly hard-hit. Abreu's homer is his 18th this season, a wicket shot that hits one of the advertising banners on the top of the Monster Seats and bounces back, with force, onto the playing field.

8:36  Eduardo Nunez takes a slider down-and-way and drives it on a line to right, scoring Chavis and the Sox have tied it up.

8:34  Michael Chavis gets under one -- a sky-high popup that scrapes the top of The Wall on its way down -- and gets a double out of it with one out.

8:12  Inexcusable sloppy baserunning by Rafael Devers, who remains off the third base bag by six feet and is promptly tagged out as left fielder Eloy Jimenez fires the ball to shortstop Tim Anderson at third.

7:43 It wasn't a line drive, but it was also well-struck -- Jackie Bradley Jr. gets a juicy four-seamer dead red and hammers it, just to the right of triangle, and into the first few rows of bleachers behind the Sox' bullpen.

7:36 Former Red Sox prospect Yoan Moncada gets a cutter down-and-in from Eduardo Rodriguez and hits a laser into the Monster Seats for a 2-0 lead. That ball got out of Fenway as fast as any this season.
