Up to the 11th inning, Pablo Sandoval was 0-4. Then, he roped a line shot over the fence in right field to put Boston ahead to stay, 5-4. The night before, The Panda had gotten his 2014 World Series ring—but he was still booed most of the night by Bay Area fans. Rick Porcello went five innings, giving up three earned runs—while the bullpen gave up just one run over the next six innings. Offensively, Blake Swihart, Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts and David Ortiz had two hits each.
