Boston rallies to beat Chicago 6-5
Tuesday, June 25, 2019

(BOSTON) – Marco Hernandez beat out an infield single with the bases loaded in the ninth and the Boston Red Sox rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Monday night. It was the second straight walk-off victory at home for Boston, which has won nine of 12. But it also marked yet another highlight for Hernandez, who earned his first-career walk-off hit and is finally contributing after missing the entire 2018 season and enduring multiple surgeries over the past two years to stabilize a left shoulder injury. It was his second clutch performance this month. He also had a game-tying home run late to help Boston rally to an extra-inning victory at Baltimore on Father's Day. Brandon Workman (7-1) got one out in the eighth, to pick up the victory. Jace Fry (1-3) took the loss for Chicago, which has lost six out of eight. Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez gave up five runs off six hits, including two home runs over 6 1/3 innings. Chicago's Lucas Giolito, who is looking to become the first White Sox All Star pitcher since Chris Sale and Jose Quintana in 2016, allowed three runs off six hits, struck out seven and walked four over 5 2/3 innings. Yoan Moncada had a two run homer for Chicago while Jose Abreu added a solo shot.
