Leon, Holt power Red Sox past D’backs 6-3

BOSTON (AP) — Brock Holt hit a two-run homer, Sandy Leon had a solo shot and the Boston Red Sox beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3 on Saturday night.

Rookie Andrew Benintendi and Dustin Pedroia each had two hits and drove in a run for Boston, which won its second straight after losing four of five.

Michael Bourn had two singles and an RBI for the Diamondbacks. They had won four of five.

Robbie Ross Jr. (2-2) worked an inning of relief for the win after starter Clay Buchholz gave up three runs over 4 1/3 innings in a spot start. Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his 19th save after Brad Ziegler entered and escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the eighth.

Archie Bradley (4-8) allowed six runs — four earned — in 5 1/3 innings.
