Six strong innings from David Price, home runs from Jackie Bradley Jr. and Sandy Leon, and a little help from Mother Nature combined to help the Red Sox to an 8-1 win over the Orioles in Baltimore.

It was the sixth straight win for the streaking Red Sox who moved ahead of Baltimore in the AL East standings.
Travis Shaw produced the first Boston run in the second inning driving in JBJ. After Chris Davis tied the score in the bottom of the inning with his 25th home run of the season, the Red Sox offense clicked in.
JBJ slammed a two-run homer to center to give Boston a 3-1 lead; two innings later Leon hit his sixth of the season driving in Mookie Betts to up the score to 5-1.
The Red Sox tacked on three more in the top of the sixth on an RBI double by David Ortiz and a two-RBI double by JBJ.
Price allowed just four hits over six innings. He struck out four and didn't walk a batter in picking up his eleventh win of the season.
The game was finally called after a rain delay of an hour and seventeen minutes.

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).
