Boston survived a scary ninth inning to earn a 7-4 victory over the Cubs in the rubber match of the three-game set in Chicago. Alfredo Aceves loaded the bases and gave up run but held on to give Matt Albers the win in relief of Franklin Morales, who gave up two runs and fanned nine in five innings. David Ortiz went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBI for the Red Sox, who have won four-of-five after losing four straight. Paul Maholm struck out six in as many innings, but gave up three runs in the start for Chicago. Shawn Camp gave up two runs while failing to retire a batter to take the loss. Starlin Castro finished a home run shy of the cycle while driving in a pair for the Cubs, who have dropped four-of-five and eight of their last 11 contests.
