Red Sox

Final: Red Sox 7, White Sox 4

After spotting the White Sox a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, the Red Sox went on to outscore their visitors by a margin of 7-2 the rest of the way, taking the first game of their four-game series, 7-4.

The win was Boston's 10th in their last 11 tries and fourth straight at home.

With the game tied 3-3 in the eighth, Marwin Gonzalez provided a homer, his first extra-base hit of the season. J.D. Martinez drew a bases-loaded walk and Xander Bogaerts supplied a bloop two-run double.

Starter Nick Pivetta lasted just 3.2 innings, but four relievers combined to give the Red Sox 5.1 innings of work out of the bullpen with one run allowed.
