Cubs Error Helps Red Sox Avoid Sweep In 11-Inning Win Sunday

Sox 7 3

CHICAGO (AP) — Pitcher Rowan Wick threw Trevor Story’s comebacker down the right-field line for a two-run error with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Boston Red Sox outlasted the Chicago Cubs 4-2 to avoid a three-game sweep. With automatic runner Bobby Dalbec on second, Wick walked Christian Arroyo leading off the 11th.  Jarren Durran struck out and Rafael Devers flied out before Story hit a soft hopper that Wick threw well over first base. Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts left in the seventh inning with a left thigh laceration after he was hurt when Willson Contreras was caught stealing second.
