Red Sox Win In A Brisk 5 Hours And 17 Minutes

At somewhere around 1:20 AM, Jackie Bradley, Jr. mercifully doubled in two runs and the Red Sox eventually took a 6-4 win over Chicago in 14 innings. This was a wicked bad game—one in which Boston got 15 walks and barely pulled out a win. Clay Buchholz was excruciatingly slow early—but gave up only six hits and two earned runs in six innings—striking out six. Dustin Pedroia—hitting lead off—was 2 for 6 with 3 runs scored. Chris Capuano threw 2 2/3 innings of shutout ball for the win.
