Adam Duvall hit his 5th homer in the 4th inning.

Masataka Yoshida went 3-5 and hit his 8th homer of the season in the 8th inning.

Brennan Bernadino pitched a scoreless 6th inning, striking out 2 and walking 1.

Corey Kluber was brought in to pitch the final 3 innings. with Boston leading 8-0. He gave up 3 home runs and 4 runs on 5 hits to pick up an ugly save.
