Stanton back on top of longest HR list

It was only a matter of time before Giancarlo Stanton hit another monster shot to claim the day's longest homer. The slugger did so Monday with a 455-foot long ball to center at Marlins Park, his 55th home run of the season.

Rookie Andrew Benintendi's bases-loaded single in the 11th inning lifted the Red Sox to a 10-8 win over the Orioles. The victory helped Boston keep its three-game lead over the Yankees, who beat Minnesota for their eighth win in 10 games.

The Red Sox have announced that Dustin Pedroia's injury is a nasal contusion and that's he's currently considered day-to-day.

Pedroia exits after taking ball to the face (0:43)

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Camden Yards just went library silent when Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off home plate that bounced up and hit him square in the face. Pedroia was down on his knee for a couple minutes, then left the game. He walked off the field under his own power and was replaced by Brock Holt, who promptly doubled.

Doug Fister may have just pitched himself right out of the Red Sox playoff rotation. The 33-year old righty had nothing against Baltimore tonight, allowing nine baserunners (four hits, five walks) and five earned runs in two-plus innings. It's the second straight clunker for Fister, whose ERA has risen from 3.91 to 4.86 in his last two starts.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Doug Fister's not fooling anybody early, except maybe for those who think he should be in Boston's playoff rotation. Through three innings against the Orioles: 4 runs, 3 hits, 3 walks, 1 mound visit, 1 reliever warming, and lots of loud outs.
