BOSTON (AP) - Daniel Nava doubled in the tying run in the ninth inning and scored on Brock Holt's single as the Boston Red Sox rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Wednesday night and snap a four-game losing streak.

Chris Sale pitched 7 2-3 innings of four-hit ball and left with a 4-0 lead in his bid to earn the last spot on the AL All-Star team. The winner of the fan voting will be announced on Thursday and Sale, an All-Star the last two seasons, walked none and struck out six before his bullpen cost him a chance to improve to 9-1.

Jake Petricka faced four batters in the eighth and failed to record an out. It was 4-3 by the time Javy Guerra (0-1) retired Mike Carp to end the eighth.

But Guerra couldn't finish it in the ninth, hitting Mookie Betts with one out and then giving up RBI hits to Nava and Holt.
