Andrew Benintendi and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit two-run homers, and Drew Pomeranz won a career-best fifth straight decision on Saturday night to help the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 4-1.
Pomeranz (11-4) gave up Tim Anderson's homer on the second pitch of the game, but didn't allow another run before leaving with a 4-1 lead with one out in the seventh. Since starting the season 3-3, Pomeranz has lost just once in 15 starts.
Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 26th save as the AL East-leading Red Sox won for the seventh time in nine games.
James Shields (2-4) took the loss for the White Sox, who have dropped five straight games and 22 of their last 26.
Pomeranz held Chicago to seven hits and a walk while striking out eight and lowering his ERA to 3.36. Anderson smacked a 1-0 pitch out to left-center, but Benintendi made it 2-1 in the bottom half of the first.
Mitch Moreland, who homered in the bottom of the 11th for the game-winner on Friday night, doubled with one out in the second. Bradley followed one out later with a shot over the bullpens in right field to make it 4-1.
Shields was charged with four runs — three earned — five hits and an intentional walk, striking out six in six innings. He is 1-4 with a 7.63 ERA since spending two months on the disabled list with a strained muscle in his back.
