The Red Sox can thank Andrew Benintendi's go-ahead home run in the 12th inning Wednesday night, along with Jackie Bradley Jr.'s game-saving home run robbery in the 11th, for why they are back at .500 for the first time since the second game of the season.

In his last seven games, Benintendi is hitting .333 with two home runs and six RBIs, helping bring his season numbers to a .280 batting average with four home runs and 19 RBIs. He's putting together a nice season for himself so far through some turbulence surrounding the team as a whole.

The Red Sox now sit at 19-19, have won eight of their last 10 games, and sit five games out of first place -- giving us our first real glimpse at what this team is capable of after winning the World Series last season.
