Steve Pearce was 3-for-5 and hit his first home run of the season, a three-run job off Ryan Feierabend, who was pitching in only his second game since July 2014 and his eighth game since 2008. He was pitching in Korea from 2015-18.

Rafael Devers singled and doubled, scored twice and knocked in two runs. Xander Bogaerts and Eduardo Núñez each had two hits; X also scored two runs.

Ryan Weber has appeared in three games this season, allowing one run in eight innings. This will be only his fourth start since 2015, and the ninth start of his career.

Tyler Thornburg has been placed on the 10-day injured list (right hip impingement (or, if you prefer, pitching like crap)) and Travis Lakins has been recalled from Pawtucket.
