On a night when the offense gave the pitching staff virtually no margin for error, David Price pitched seven dominant innings, limiting the Blue Jays to just three hits as the Red Sox beat Toronto 1-0 for their 100th win of the year.

The game's only run came in the bottom of the fifth inning when Rafael Devers scampered home from third on a wild pitch.

Price (pictured) struck out seven and didn't walk a single batter in recording his 15th win of the year. The Blue Jays didn't even have a base runner until a one-out single in the top of the fifth inning by Yangervis Solarte, and only had one runner reach second base through the first seven innings.

Since the All-Star Break, Price has been a beast in the rotation going 5-0 over nine starts with a 1.56 ERA over that span. The Red Sox are 8-1 in those nine games.

Steven Wright pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Craig Kimbrel struck out two in the ninth for his 39th save of the year.

Aaron Sanchez held the Red Sox offense in check over his seven innings matching Price in allowing just three hits.
