An epic 13-pitch at-bat by Mookie Betts resulting in a grand slam helped lift the Red Sox past the Blue Jays 6-4 in front of a raucous crowd at Fenway Park Thursday night.

The victory was Boston's 10th in a row, and the 10th this season for starting pitcher David Price.
Trailing 2-0 after Price allowed a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, the Sox were held scoreless until the bottom of the fourth when they scored five runs off Toronto starter J.A. Happ, four of them off the bat of Betts.
Jackie Bradley Jr. continued his recent upswing at the plate with a pair of hits including his 16th double of the year. He has raised his average up to .208.
Price went 6.2 innings for the win, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.
Craig Kimbrel recorded his 29th save of the year with a scoreless ninth inning.

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).
