BOSTON (AP) — Will Middlebrooks hit an RBI single with the bases loaded, capping a two-run rally in the eighth inning that sent the Boston Red Sox over the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Wednesday night for a sweep of the two-game interleague series.

David Ortiz and Mike Napoli also drove in runs for the World Series champion Red Sox, who reached .500 for the first time since the fourth game of the season.

Skip Shumaker hit a two-run homer for Cincinnati, who lost the opener to Boston 4-3 in 12 innings.
