Red Sox Win 4th In a Row Beat Mariners 2-1
Make it 4 in a row for the Boston Red Sox, as they defeated the Seattle Mariners 2-1 on Thursday night in Seattle.
David Price, now 8-4 pitched a gem, going 7.0 innings, allowing 5 hits and just 1 run. He struck out 7 and didn't walk a batter. Joe Kelly pitched the 8th and Craig Kimbrel pitched the 9th, picking up his 22nd save of the season. Kimbrel's inning wasn't without a little drama, as he walked 2 putting the winning runners on base.
JD Martinez, Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts and Christian Vazquez were all 2-4 for the Red Sox. Bogaerts hit his 10th homer, a solo shot that proved to be the game winner. Jackie Bradley Jr. and Devers each had a double.
The Red Sox remain percentage points behind the New York Yankees, who won again defeating Tampa Bay 4-3
