BOSTON (AP) — Andrew Benintendi hit a solo homer off Jake Arrieta during a five-run first inning and Boston held on to beat Chicago.
Every Red Sox starter had at least one hit, and Hanley Ramirez, Mitch Moreland, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Christian Vazquez also drove in a run each.
Left-hander Drew Pomeranz (2-1) got the win with six innings of two-run ball, surrendering solo homers to Kris Bryant and Albert Almora Jr. in the early innings before settling in. He allowed six hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Boston has won its last nine interleague games at Fenway Park.
Arrieta (3-1) logged his shortest start since Aug. 28, 2014, lasting only 4 1/3 innings and giving up 10 hits and three walks with five strikeouts.
