In what could be the last start for Doubront of the season, he went seven innings allowing two runs on four hits. He allowed a run in the second inning and then another in the fifth, a solo home run from Kevin Pillar. Franklin Morales pitched a scoreless eighth, before Koji Uehara pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his 21st save of the season.
The four-run second inning was highlighted by a three-run home run from Jackie Bradley Jr., which scored Ryan Lavarnway and Stephen Drew. The Sox added their fifth run in the sixth on a solo home run off the bat of David Ortiz. Ortiz had two of the six Red Sox hits on the afternoon.
The team will have Monday off before a two-game series in Colorado against the Rockies, before closing out the regular season in Baltimore next weekend.
What they'll be saying: The Red Sox finished 53-28 at home this season and has secured the best home record in the AL this season. Last year the Sox went an AL-worst 34-47 at home ... If there were to be any injury concerns with Shane Victorino or Jacoby Ellsbury, Bradley Jr. is proving he could take over if need be as he's swinging a hot bat of late. He is 5-for-10 with a double, homer, and 3 RBI in his last 3 games ... The next time the Sox are at home will be Oct. 4 when they host Game 1 of the ALDS.
