The win was Boston's third in its last four games and fourth in its last six.
Price was magnificent in getting into the win column for the first time in 2019. He scattered three hits and didn't walk a batter while striking out eight before turning things over to the bullpen.
Bogaerts put Boston up 1-0 with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fourth inning and then slammed a three-run homer to center in the eighth to put the game out of reach.
Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez each had two hits in the win. Andrew Benintendi left the game after fouling a ball off his left foot. X-rays were negative and manager Alex Cora said after the game that Benintendi is day-to-day.
The Red Sox wrap the four-game series up Monday morning at 11:05 AM in the annual Patriots' Day game. Hector Velazquez will be on the mound for Boston.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
