Boston Red Sox

BOSTON – The last time the Red Sox won 100 games in a season, Teddy Ballgame was playing left field.

That changed Wednesday night at Fenway Park as Boston picked up a 1-0 win over the Blue Jays, becoming the first Red Sox team to hit the 100-win mark since 1946.

It is only the fourth time in franchise history the Red Sox have reached 100 wins.

David Price was masterful again, tossing seven innings of three-hit ball. He struck out seven. The lefty moved to 15-6 on the season with the win.

Since giving up five home runs on July 1 to the Yankees, Price has the best ERA in the American League at 2.22 and the lowest WHIP in the Junior Circuit at 0.88.

Manager Alex Cora continued experimenting in the eighth inning, going to knuckleballer Steven Wright in an attempt to find a reliable bullpen option ahead of October. Wright allowed a leadoff double and walked the next hitter on four pitches, but was able to get out of the jam unharmed.

Craig Kimbrel tossed a scoreless ninth, notching his 39th save of the season.

Rafael Devers scored the lone run of the game on a wild pitch.

The Red Sox will look for a series sweep on Thursday. Eduardo Rodriguez (12-4, 3.64 ERA) will take the ball against Sam Gaviglio (3-8. 5.25 ERA).
