The Red Sox scored twice in the bottom of the first inning - they've now outscored their opponents 45-24 -n the first inning this year - and never looked back.

Dustin Pedroia led Boston with three hits; Xander Bogaerts (pictured), David Ortiz, and Jackie Bradley Jr. each had two hits. JBJ has now hit in 28 consecutive games and officially half-way to Joe DiMaggio's historic 56-game record. Bogaerts has a streak of his own going with a base hit in seventeen straight games.

Price allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six. He lowered his ERA to 5.34.

The Red Sox are hitting .311 as a team at home where they've won 12 of their last 14.
