The Boston Red scored 11 runs in the seventh inning and routed the visiting Miami Marlins 14-6 on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.
Boston trailed 5-3 entering the bottom of the seventh. The Red Sox then pounded 12 hits in the inning off of three Miami relievers, including Adam Conley (3-4).
Blake Swihart and Jackie Bradley each had an RBI single and an RBI double in the seventh.
Mookie Betts was another Boston hitting star, going 3-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs on the night.
However, it wasn’t all good news for Boston. Starter David Price lasted just three innings, coming out of the game after he was hit on his left wrist by an Austin Dean line drive that was clocked at 103 mph. Price sustained a contusion, and his night was over after allowing five hits and three runs. He struck out three without issuing a walk.
