The Cubs ensured the Red Sox would earn their way back to the win column.

In the eighth inning, Boston held a 4-1 lead over Chicago, but relief pitcher Chris Martin couldn’t maintain it. Cubs outfielder Mike Tauchman crushed a clutch, game-tying three-run home run off Martin, knotting the score up at 4-4. It was an uncharacteristic showing from Martin, who tied his season-high mark in runs allowed this season, yet Boston managed to overcome the minor hiccup at home.
