David Price has been on a roll. The righty went six solid innings on Saturday, giving up five hits and two earned runs (both in the first inning) on the way to Boston's 4-2 win over the ChiSox. It was Price's seventh win on the year and lowered his once-high ERA down to 4.00. The offense was paced by J.D. Martinez, whose two-run home run into the Red Sox bullpen was the difference in the game. Also going yard was Jackie Bradley, Jr.—a blast into the batter's eye in center field. Christian Vazquez continued his recent hot streak by going 2-4 and getting his average over the 200-mark (.206). In addition, the Boston bullpen delivered three scoreless innings, giving the Pale Hose just one hit. Closer Craig Kimbrel secured his 20th save. Unfortunately, the Metropolitans blew a 3-0 lead against The Evil Ones, so the Red Sox remain a second-place ballclub.
