Rookie Andrew Benitendi cracked two home runs as the Red Sox beat Baltimore 7-3 Sunday afternoon to make it a 2-2 split in the four game series.

Benitendi also had a RBI single as his big day helped end a 1-for-21 skid.

Chris Sale threw 39 pitches in the first inning, giving up three runs but then settled in to work six innings and he got his 7th win. He struck out nine.

The 31-25 Sox get Monday off before opening a series against the first place Yankees on Tuesday night.
