It was a homecoming of sorts for former Florida Marlin Hanley Ramirez and he made the Marlins remember going 2-5 with a homer, a stolen base, driving in 2 runs, and flashing some leather at 1B to help lead the Boston Red Sox to their 4th straight win, beating the Marlins 7-3 Monday night.

Brian Johnson went 6 strong innings, allowing just 1 run, striking out 5 and walking 2. Heath Hembree pitched a perfect 7th  and Marcus Walden closed out the game going 2 innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 1 and walking 1.

Every starting position player had at least 1 hit, with the exception of Jackie Bradley Jr.  Mookie Betts batting leadoff was 2-5 with a homer. Rafael Devers was 2-5 with a double, Xander Bogaerts was 2-5, Eduardo Nunez was 2-5 with a double and Christian Vazquez was 2-4.

Trevor Richards took the loss for Miami
