Bats power Red Sox past White Sox

Boston took two of three from Chicago at Guaranteed Rate Field earlier this year, outscoring the White Sox 21-13 over the three games. But Rafael Devers, Mookie Betts and Co. were there to pick him up. The Red Sox only can take Sale's rest so far, Farrell reminded, penciling him in for games against the Yankees on August 13, Aug. 19 and Sept 3 with a pennant race on the line.

The Red Sox are a first-place team again, and they're starting to play like it, too. Eduardo Nunez knocked in the first run on an RBI single, and Hanley Ramirez drove in Nunez via a double.

Long (3-4) allowed three hits while striking out three and walking one to pick up the win. Benintendi never stopped, rounding third and heading home as Ramirez beat the throw to to first.

Syracuse went up 5-0 in the fifth after Irving Falu hit a two-run home run as part of a four-run inning.

Porcello has now allowed 26 homers this season, a career-high.

The White Sox' Opening Day starter was on the mound last night, but not in Boston. Sale has pitched twice vs. the Yankees, both losses for Boston, but he allowed just three runs - two earned - over 15.2 innings.

With the win, Boston improved to 60-49, while Chicago dropped to 41-64. The Yankees lost, meaning the Red Sox now have a two-game lead in the AL East.

Chicago will breathe a sigh of relief when it sees Moncada at second base and batting fourth tonight, and it will hope to observe no lingering effects of the incident in the young phenom.

Benintendi, who sat out the last two games, surged out of an 8-for-54 slump with a ground-rule double to the triangle in center field in the first.

Nicky Delmonico hit his first career homer, a three-run shot in the third, for the White Sox.

Porcello lasted until the fifth, when he was pulled following a one-out double by Tim Anderson. It's only the second time this season (23 starts) that Porcello did not finish six innings.

The Red Sox have carefully crafted the starting rotation for the remainder of the season so that ace Chris Sale will face the Yankees at least three more times, manager John Farrell explained to reporters on Thursday.
