    in abundance Tuesday night. Dustin Pedroia and the Boston Red Sox backed
    Dempster with a season-high 20 hits, giving him an early cushion that kept
    getting bigger in an 11-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Pedroia drove in
    four runs on three hits and a sacrifice fly. Mike Napoli added two RBIs and
    every Boston batter finished with at least one hit. Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Nava
    and Jose Iglesias had three hits apiece as the Red Sox built a big lead for
    Dempster after scoring just two runs in his past two starts combined. Dempster
    (5-8) allowed two runs and six hits over six innings, leaving with an 8-2 lead
    and picking up his first victory since June 9. "We have an incredible offence.
    So you just go out there and worry about doing your job. Its just making pitches
    and executing pitches," Dempster said. "The wins come as a team more than an
    individual. Thats all I care about is that when I start, we win the game. I want
    to give us a chance to win the game and was able to do that tonight. And we put
    up a lot of runs." Dempster got himself in and out of trouble in the first,
    walking Dexter Fowler to lead off the game. DJ LeMahieus attempt at a sacrifice
    bunt turned into an infield single as it rolled toward third base without a
    Boston player fielding it. Dempster got Carlos Gonzalez to pop out to third,
    then Michael Cuddyer grounded into a double play to end the threat. "I thought
    the key was in the first inning," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Boston
    responded with two runs on three hits in the bottom of the first and led the
    rest of the way. The Red Sox had at least three hits in every inning until the
    fifth, when they finally went hitless but still got a runner on base on a
    two-out walk to David Ortiz. It was also the first inning in which Boston failed
    to score after roughing up Juan Nicasio (4-4) early. "Its a good hitting club,"
    Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. "Youve really got to command your stuff with
    that lineup or they make you pay." Wilin Rosario had three hits for the Rockies,
    including a solo homer in the second all the way out of Fenway Park.
    Michael Cuddyer extended his career-best hitting streak to 22 games, longest in
    the majors this season, with a single in the fourth. He finished with two hits.
    But those were the high points for the Rockies in a game that lasted 3 hours, 40
    minutes. Nicasio had his worst start of the season, lasting only 2 1-3 innings
    and allowing seven runs -- six earned -- on 12 hits. He walked two and struck
    out two. He had never allowed more than eight hits in a start this season and
    the Red Sox had that matched after two innings, taking a 5-1 lead with a pair of
    runs in the first and three more in the second. "He looked like he struggled to
    find any rhythm or tempo tonight," Weiss said. "He was in bad counts and thats a
    tough lineup to get through when youre in bad counts. Youre sitting in fastball
    counts and they know youre throwing your fastball, they dont miss it." The Red
    Sox tagged Nicasio again in the third, ending his night after Pedroias RBI
    single gave Boston 12 hits with two outs still to go in the inning.
    Adam Ottavino inherited runners at first and second, but got the Rockies out of
    the jam by striking out Ortiz and getting Napoli on a fly to centre. Boston
    added a run in the fourth after Stephen Drew tripled to centre field on a hit he
    thought was a home run when it bounced high off the top of the wall. The umpires
    ruled the ball was in play and Drew was stuck briefly at third. The umpires
    spent several minutes looking at video replays before returning to the field and
    signalling that it was going to stay a triple. Boston fans booed loudly at the
    call, but quickly forgot about it when Iglesias doubled to left and Drew trotted
    home to increase the lead to 8-2. Nolan Arenado had three hits and an RBI for
    the Rockies. Dempsters only glaring mistake came in the second inning on a 3-1
    slider to Rosario, who drove it out of Fenway Park for his 12th home run of the
    season. The solo shot cleared the Green Monster in left field and all the signs
    above it, landing in a raised parking lot across the street. "I didnt see it,"
    Dempster said. "I think it hit a car on the turnpike, probably. It happens."
