MIAMI -- A Justin Bour walk-off single in the bottom of the tenth inning lifted the Marlins to a 5-4 victory over the Red Sox in front of 31,951 at Marlins Park on Tuesday night.

"When [Dee] hit the triple to open the inning, it's just one of those things where you just have to get the run in," Bour said. "First pitch was a ball so the next pitch I was looking for something over the plate. I was able to drive it."

Other Marlins notes:

-- The Marlins overcame a four game deficit, the largest they have overcome this season. Manager Dan Jennings said the Miami's rally after trailing by four was "outstanding.": "I thought we had some very productive outs. Guys swung the bats extremely well all night."

-- Dee Gordon, who opened the tenth with a triple, has eight RBIs over his last nine games and leads the Marlins with eight RBIs to this point in August: "It's a long season so you just have to take the positives out of every situation. [Bour] came up with a really big clutch hit."

-- Miami drew a season high nine walks against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

-- J.T. Realmuto's 77 hits are the second-most by a Marlins rookie catcher.

-- Justin Nicolino said "there were a lot of jitters tonight" but was able to toss 5.2 innings while allowing four runs: "I made some pitches when I needed to. You have to look at it as a great team win. Guys picked me up. That's all you could ask for."

-- Miami's bullpen did not allow a hit or earned run in 4.1 innings in relief of Nicolino.
