On a night when starter David Price didn't get out of the third inning, the offense came to life, sparked by home runs from Hanley Ramirez, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Mookie Betts (pictured). Price went just 2.1 innings, charged with six runs on a dozen hits. He struck out one and did not walk anyone.
Heath Hembree was the winner in relief; Koji Uehara struck out the side in the bottom of the ninth to earn his second save of the year.
The Rangers scored in each of the first four innings and held a 7-2 lead after four. Boston scored two in the sixth on Bradley's thirteenth home run of the year.
In the ninth, Sandy Leon doubled in a run, Betts drove in two with his sixteenth long ball, and Dustin Pedroia scored on a wild pitch.

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 (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
