Benintendi made a final plea to the fans last night on NESN.

"It'd be an awesome thing to go to, to represent the Red Sox would be awesome," he said. "To all the fans out there, I'd love to have your vote. Whatever happens happens, but I'm glad to be here in Boston."

Benintendi doubled twice and drove in a pair of runs in the latest win. He's 12-for-his-last-19 with five doubles, a homer, 4 RBI, and nine runs.

"Feeling pretty good," he said. "Still trying to figure some things out, just trying to fix some little things with my swing. But still, feeling pretty comfortable right now, just trying to help the team win."

Five straight multi-hit games. Benintendi's batting .367 this year with runners in scoring position.
