Red Sox Win Makeup Game With Marlins To Earn Fifth Straight Victory
By KEN POWTAK
BOSTON (AP) – Christian Arroyo hit a two-run single in Boston’s three-run fourth inning, and the Red Sox took advantage of Miami’s shoddy play to hold off the Marlins 5-3 for their fifth straight victory. Alex Verdugo added an RBI double and two hits for the Red Sox, who were coming off their first three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium since June 2011. Starling Marte hit a solo homer and two singles for Miami, which stranded 14 baserunners in its ninth loss in its last 10 games. The Red Sox are a season-high 14 games over .500 at 37-23.
