David Price has certainly been the beneficiary of offensive support. Last night, he got eight more runs on his way to an 8-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. David Ortiz continued his 'Magical Mystery Farewell Tour' with four more RBIs—going 2-4 and raising his average to .333. Jackie Bradley, Jr. extended his hitting streak to 28 games by roping the first pitch he saw off the wall in left for a double. The "other" streak was also extended, as Xander Bogaerts went 2-4 to go to sixteen straight games with a hit. Dustin Pedroia also joined the 'hit parade' with a 3-4 night. Baltimore's loss put The Carmine Hose in sole possession of first place in the AL East—11 games over .500.
