MLB video highlights: Red Sox beat White Sox 6-4 in extra innings

It wasn’t pretty, but as the saying goes, a win is a win.

Once again it was a frustrating night for the Red Sox offense, but they came through with runs in the eighth and ninth innings to tie the game and force extra innings before plating the game-winning run in the 14th inning to come-from-behind and top the White Sox 6-4 Wednesday night. The win avoided the first four game losing streak since the end of 2012 for the team.

The Red Sox started out the game with three straight hits, but didn’t get another until the ninth on a ball from Jonny Gomes that barely made it past the pitcher’s mound. The Red Sox were able to tie the game in the ninth on a Grady Sizemore sacrifice fly and then Jonny Gomes added another sacrifice fly in the 11th. The Sox finally were able to get the game-winning hit in the 14th when Jackie Bradley Jr. ripped a two-out double off of White Sox utility infielder Leury Garcia.

Boston relievers threw three innings of scoreless ball, led by two from Andrew Miller and 1 1/3 from Craig Breslow as well as 2/3 innings from Junichi Tazawa until Edward Mujica came on in the 11th to pick up the save, but he allowed a run, extending the game three more innings. Chris Capuano came on to throw 2 2/3 scoreless innings before Burke Badenhop got the final out in the 14th.

Starter Clay Buchholz gave the Red Sox another solid start. The right-hander went six innings allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits while striking out six. The big blow came in the sixth inning — a two-run homer from Alexei Ramirez making it a 3-1 game at the time.

Xander Bogaerts picked up his first RBI of the year with a single in the first inning for the first Red Sox run and A.J. Pierzynski’s sacrifice fly in the eighth inning was the second.

It was another lackluster night for the Sox offense finishing with just six hits, three past the first inning and going 3-for-17 with runners in scoring position. The White Sox did almost anything in their power to give the game to the Red Sox as they issued 15 walks.

The teams will wrap up their three-game set Thursday night (8:10, NESN) as a pair of aces will face off in Jon Lester and Chris Sale.

What they’ll be saying: It was a game which saw pretty much everything lasting over five hours and well into the night on the East Coast. It was a game the Red Sox really could not lose having lost three straight coming in and White Sox pitching practically handing them the game by issuing 15 walks. Although it took 14 innings and scoring two runs off a utility infielder, the Red Sox were able to get it done overcoming a 4-for-17 with runners in scoring position performance … The game should have been over in the 11th as the Red Sox took a 4-3 lead in the top half of the inning, but Edward Mujica, closing for the injured Koji Uehara, couldn’t shut the door … Regardless of how it happened, this game could be a turning point in the year for the Red Sox after overcoming a late deficit and picking up their first win in their last at bat of the season.
