The Offense Shows Up In A BIG Way

On an night when starting pitcher David Price left with an injury, the Red Sox offense kicked into gear with a 12-hit, 11-run inning that saw 15 batters come to the plate. For Boston, it was the team's single biggest inning since 2003.

The 14-6 win Wednesday night pushed the Sox back to 50 games above .500 and 7.5 games over the Yankees in the American League East.

Mookie Betts (pictured) and Eduardo Nunez led the way with three hits; Andrew Benintendi and Sandy Leon were the only starters without at least one hit. Brock Holt and Blake Swihart each had two hits...and they didn't even start the game!

Nunez, Ian Kinsler, Swihart, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Betts each had two hits in the seventh inning.

Price is listed as day-to-day after being hit by a line drive in the third inning. X-rays were negative and he said after the game that he expects to make his next start Monday in Atlanta.
