Cincinnati blasted two more home runs off Nick Pivetta after Kutter Crawford allowed three long balls the night before. But like Crawford, Pivetta locked in to keep the damage to three earned runs.

That allowed the Red Sox lineup to cut down on the strikeouts and put the ball in play. A Dominic Smith homer and a Connor Wong double got Boston within a run. Cincinnati did its best to help the Red Sox as well by running into three outs on the base paths on the afternoon.

Boston eventually evened the score when Rob Refsnyder singled to score Ceddanne Rafaela in the eighth inning. Rafael Devers followed later in the frame with a sacrifice fly to score Jarren Duran.

Boston’s bullpen did its job to hold down the lead, headlined by Duran robbing a homer from Stuart Fairchild, and even the series.
