Boston takes 2-1 series lead

One run was the difference at Fenway Park as the Boston Red Sox defeated the
Houston Astros 4 to 3.

Boston delivered all the runs required in the 1st inning when they tallied 4
runs on 4 hits. That early scoring was all that Drew Pomeranz(3-0) needed.
Craig Kimbrel was perfect in the ninth giving him his 4th save on the season.

Charlie Morton(0-1) was given the loss. He pitched 7 innings allowing 5 hits
and 3 walks.
