The win, Boston's sixth in their last ten games, combined with the Blue Jays losing to the Yankees moved the Red Sox into sole possession of first place in the American League East.
Price went seven innings in improving his record to 15-8. He struck out eight and didn't walk a batter as his ERA dropped to 3.92, the lowest it's been since Opening Day.
Shaw (pictured) gave Boston a 2-1 lead in the top of the second inning with his sixteenth home run of the year, driving in Jackie Bradley Jr. After the Padres tied the game in the third, Shaw's fourth-inning single drove JBJ in to give the Sox a 3-2 lead.

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).
