The Red Sox got out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning, but the Cubs were able to answer with a run of their own in the bottom half of the first. The Cubs tied the score in the third inning, but that would prove short-lived, as David Ortiz hit a solo shot to center in the top of the fourth inning to give the lead back to Boston.

Paul Maholm has given up five hits and three runs while striking out six and walking one.
