Michael Conforto, Jorge Soler, Wilmer Flores and Matt Chapman each had one of San Francisco’s four hits, all of which were singles.

Giants starter Logan Webb (3-2) allowed four runs on nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. He walked three and struck out four. Webb threw 91 pitches, 52 for strikes.

Webb entered the game with a 19-inning scoreless streak but was unable to extend the run, as the Red Sox took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Tyler O’Neill singled, moved to second when Abreu walked and scored on a Refsnyder single. O’Neill’s single stretched his hitting streak to eight games.

Boston extended its lead to 2-0 in the second when Duran’s single drove in Reese McGuire from third. McGuire reached base on a walk and stole second.

The Red Sox made it 3-0 when Refsnyder’s single scored Abreu in the third. Abreu opened the inning with a double.

It was 4-0 after Duran singled, stole second and scored on Abreu’s triple in the fourth.

Garrett Cooper made his Red Sox debut on Tuesday. He started at first base but had to leave the game after he was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning.

Cooper, 33, was designated for assignment by the Chicago Cubs last week and was acquired by Boston on Saturday for cash considerations. He went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in his debut.
