David Ortiz's only hit of the game also started a three-run rally in the third. (Lenny Ignelzi/AP)
 Ortiz's RBI single
 Lowell's RBI single
 Ramirez's sac fly
A three-run fifth inning was all Josh Beckett, who gave up just two runs, needed to pick up his Major League-leading 11th win of the season. The Red Sox produced their four runs on RBI singles by David Ortiz and Mike Lowell, Manny Ramirez's sac fly and Jason Varitek's homer.
