David Price delivered another strong performance, and the offense delivered just enough support, as the Red Sox to beat the Mariners 2-1 at Fenway Park on Sunday afternoon.

Price (pictured) went eight innings for the third consecutive game, allowing one run on eight hits. He struck out seven and walked no one in earning his eighth win of the year, tying him with Steven Wright and Rick Porcello for the team lead.

Seattle took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning on a Franklin Gutierrez solo home run near the Pesky Pole.

Boston tied the score in the sixth on an RBI groundout by Hanley Ramirez that scored Xander Bogaerts. Mookie Betts homered to left an inning later to deliver what would prove to be the winning run.

Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth for his sixteenth save.

Betts led the Sox with three hits; Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Chris Young each had two. Bogaerts collected his 100th hit of the year in just the team's 68th game.

Both teams wore special blue-themed Father's Day uniforms for the occasion.
