The bats had other ideas.

The Red Sox posted two separate four-run innings over the first four frames. Boston slugged five doubles — two off the bat of Jarren Duran — off of Nola before the second inning concluded, posting four runs in the second inning.

Familiar face Kyle Schwarber brought the Phillies within a run in the fourth innings with a bases-clearing double off the wall in center field. That’s when the Red Sox wasted no time with an immediate response in the bottom of the frame.

Boston replicated the production against Nola again, this time powered by a long three-run home run from Tyler O’Neill to drive the Red Sox to a sustainable lead.
