The scary moment happened in the fourth inning.

Roaring from behind and then finally winning in extra innings, the Boston Red Sox did more than merely maintain their lead in the AL East.

Bogaerts' solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game at 8-8 and sent the game to extra innings. Then, after Tzu-Wei Lin drew a two-out walk to load the bases in the 11th, Andrew Benintendi came through with a two-run single to complete the comeback.

The Boston medical staff came to check him out, and Pedroia was able to walk off and left the game.

"Obviously we've played a lot, some long ones, and playing 11 innings tonight seems more like a nine-inning game than anything else", Benintendi said.

"This is a big one, being down early and coming back", Benintendi said. It was their 15th win when trailing after six innings, and 16th when tied or trailing entering the ninth.

The 34-year-old is still effective when healthy, however, and is a key part of the Red Sox offense when in the lineup.

Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia left the Red Sox's game with the Baltimore Orioles in the fourth inning Monday with a nasal contusion.

As the Orioles stagger to the end of the season, there's speculation that manager Buck Showalter might shut down Bundy, who's now at a career-high 169 2/3 innings.

Three walks and a single were enough to give them the edge in the 11th.
