Up Next: The 22-8 Red Sox fly to Arlington, Texas for the start of a four-game set against the Rangers on Thursday.

The Red Sox won five of six games against the Rangers last season.

It's a big outing for Price, who got off to a great start to the season but has endured back-to-back ugly outings. The left-hander dropped to 0-5 in his career against the Red Sox. The club's starters have an ERA of 5.18, a WHIP of 1.51 and a strikeouts-per-nine of 7.3.

His third homer, a towering shot to center field off Duffy, turned out to be the game-winning run.

Betts had tied Williams' mark just 15 days ago when he hit three homers against the Los Angeles Angels and now has 11 homers on the season.

Mookie Betts is better than Ted Williams. The Royals were trying for consecutive wins for just the second time this season.

Drew Pomeranz got through six innings, giving up three runs and got his first win of the season. He proceeded to take his time in a slow, methodical home run trot.

Jorge Soler (via translator) after hitting game-winning RBIs for @Royals: "That was a insane game". Chirinos has belted three home runs along with 11 RBI's in 16 career games against the Red Sox. They own a poor 4.68 team ERA, placing them 24th in the Major leagues.
