David Price And 'Bandit-Tendi' Pace Boston In 6-2 Win

David Price pitched like an ace on Monday night. Without an overpowering fastball, he used all of his other pitches to keep Rays hitter off-balance in eight brilliant innings of two-hit ball in the 6-2 win. His effort was help by a stupendous HR-robbing catch by rookie Andrew Benintendi in left-field. Leaping over the wall to save two runs "Bandit-Tendi" kept his balance and made the out. Boston's offense was paced by Xander Bogaerts (2-4, 2 RBIs HR), Hanley Ramirez and Sandy 'Babe' Leon. But it was 'The Catch' that had everyone talking. The win pulled the Red Sox into a first-place tie with the idle Blue Jays. They are now 6-2 on this road trip.
