Using a tip he received from his second baseman, David Price found some added velocity, struck out twelve and scattered six hits over 6.2 innings as the Red Sox kept their winning streak going with an 11-1 win over the Astros at Fenway Park.

Moving his hands in sync more with his legs (pictured), Price consistently hit 94 mph with his fastball throughout the game and topped at 95 in the top of the seventh.
Xander Bogarts got the scoring started in the bottom of the first inning with his third home run of the year, putting Boston up 2-0.
A Pedroia error in the second allowed the Astros to cut the lead in half but Boston scored on an RBI single by Jackie Bradley Jr. in the third and added two more in the third on an run-scoring double by Hanley Ramirez and an RBI single by Chris Young.
Mookie Betts added three more runs on his sixth home run of the season in the bottom of the sixth. Boston now has hit at least one home run in thirteen straight games.
The Red Sox were in double digits in hits again with fourteen. Hanley led the team with three; JBJ added two more and saw his consecutive-game hitting streak move to eighteen

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
