One inning later, the Boston bats erupted to rip all the momentum away from the Phillies. The Red Sox scored eight runs across the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

As he can, Jarren Duran served as a sparkplug with three hits while scoring and driving in a run. Alex Cora also pushed the right button when Enmanuel Valdez pinch-hit with a two-run double to break through and take the lead against Philadelphia.
