Let's face it, reliever Brad Ziegler saved the Sox in a 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks and getting the Sox within a game of the lead in the AL East.

Reliever Matt Barnes walked the bases loaded in the 8th inning with nobody out before Ziegler came in a struck out the side. It counts as a 'hold' in the stat department but everyone at Fenway knew it saved the game.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning to record the save.

Clay Buchholz made the spot start and pitched ok, 4.1 innings and giving up three runs.

The offense came from the bottom of the order, Sandy Leon-Brock Holt-Andrew Benintendi. They had five of the Sox eight hits, two of them home runs and five RBI.

Baltimore lost out west while Toronto won its game. The Blue Jays now lead the division with the Sox one game back in the loss column.
