BOSTON – The top five hitter of the Red Sox batting order (Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi, JD Martinez, Mitch Moreland and Xander Bogaerts) went one combined 0-for-23.
Do not worry: The bottom half took care of that.
Eduardo Nuñez picked the second base and stole it to launch the 13th.
Blake Swihart, who was hit in the tenth inning, defeated a 105.8 mph walk-off double with an out in the 13th inning. He banded together on a 99.3 mph fastball.
The Red Sox won 2: 1 over the Phillies here in Fenway Park.
The 6-9 batsmen, including Swihart, all had seven Red Sox hits.
Price, Nola both allow 1
David Price only allows one run in 8 innings. He scattered eight strokes and a walk while he hit five.
No strike was greater than stopping Maikel Franco with a 91.8 mph two-cut to finish the sixth inning.
With two runners based and two outs in the eighth, Asdrubal Cabrera has a 106.0 mph sinking liner to the right field that has caught Mookie Betts. It had a hit probability of 88 percent.
Price continued to mix his tone well. He threw 30 cutters (a swing-and-miss), 29 changes (six swings and misses), 25 two-seam fastballs (a swing-and-miss), 11 four-seamers and two curveballs.
Phillies ace Aaron Nola only allowed one run in 8 innings. He only gave four strokes and one gear while he hit six.
Also tonight, Red Sox launch cups have a 1.41 ERA in their last 12 games. According to @EliasSports this is the club's lowest starting pitcher ERA for 12 years (1.31 from 7 / 20-8 / 3).

Red Sox Turn 5-2-6-5 Double Game
Bad base led by the Phillies finished the third inning  With first and third base runners, Carlos Santana landed on third baseman Eduardo Nunez, who threw catcher Sandy Leon home.
Rhys Hoskins was a waste between the third base and his home. Xander Bogaerts, who capped third, received Leon's throw and missed Odubel Herrera, who inexplicably tried to move up to third when the ball was thrown into third place.
Bogaerts then fired at Nunez, who marked Hoskins.

Red Sox Tie game, then give away opportunity to take leadership  Eduardo Nunez scored 1-1 in the fifth inning to score 100.5 mph and an RBI driver offensive over midfielder Odubel Herrera.
Herrera played the ball badly. He stopped and jumped to catch the ball, which was traveling at a starting angle of 13 degrees. But it went over his head and all the way back to the warning track.
The Red Sox had the chance to take the lead in the fifth round. Brock Holt left after Nunez tripled. The Red Sox had runners at the corners with one out. But Sandy Leon lined up for second base and Holt was doubled from first base.
