BOSTON — Hunter Renfroe homered twice, the second to break a sixth-inning tie, as the Red Sox rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Kansas City Royals 6-5.

Kike Hernandez led off the bottom of the first with a home run for the second straight game, Bobby Dalbec also homered and Renfroe had a two-run shot in the fourth as Boston came back after falling behind 5-1.

It was Renfroe's 13th career multihomer game.

The victory was Boston's fourth straight, following a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees. It was also the team's major league-leading 26th come-from-behind win.
