JD Martinez hit his 17th homer of the season, a solo shot in the 5th inning. He's now tied with teammate Mookie Betts and Mike Trout of the Angels for the most in the major league.
Jackie Bradley Jr. was 1-3 with a double and proved again why he is one of the best defensive outfielders with a highlight reel catch
Starting pitcher David Price went 5.0 innings, allowing 4 hits and 2 earned runs. He struck out 4 and walked 4. Knuckleballer Steven Wright again pitched well in relief, pitching the final 2 innings just allowing 1 hit and striking out 2.
