The Boston Red Sox found some extra-inning magic for the second game in a row.
The Red Sox were deadlocked with the Philadelphia Phillies during the 12th inning at Fenway Park on Tuesday night when Andrew Benintendi sent the home crowd into a frenzy.
Xander Bogaerts drew a one-out walk to bring up Mitch Moreland, who laced a rocket off the Green Monster that allowed Bogaerts to take third in front of Benintendi.
The star left fielder then ripped a laser to the warning track in right field for a walk-off single to give the Sox a 4-3 victory.
It was the first walk-off hit of Benintendi’s career and his first go-ahead RBI past the fifth inning.
This is the second consecutive game the Red Sox have won in extra innings as Dustin Pedroia gave Boston the win Monday night with his second career walk-off hit.
