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)

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.

Power Rankings: Red Sox on the rise

Despite the Yankees' recent hot stretch, the Red Sox continue to lead the AL East thanks to solid play of their own. New York has the easier schedule down the stretch, but Boston's big bats can keep the team in first.

Rays 3, Red Sox 2: Eduardo Rodriguez picked a bad time to make his worst mistake. On his 110th and final pitch of the game, Rodriguez allowed a solo homer to Jesus Sucre that broke a tie and sent the Rays to a victory in the finale of a three-game series. The Red Sox didn't have a hit until the sixth inning, when Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a two-run homer against Rays starter Jake Odorizzi. David Price tossed two scoreless innings in relief, his first game action since July 22. The Rays snapped their three-game losing streak.

David Price gets through a perfect eighth inning in 14 pitches. He struck out Adeiny Hechavarria, got Trevor Plouffe to pop to second and got Brad Miller to ground to shortstop. 21 pitches overall to six batters over the two innings.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Seven-pitch seventh inning for David Price, who hit 95 mph on the radar reading at the Trop. He got Peter Bourjos to line out, struck out Evan Longoria, then got Lucas Duda to ground to first.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Here comes David Price -- on in relief in the seventh inning -- for his first game action since a July 22 start at Angel Stadium. Price hasn't made a regular-season relief appearance since 2010 with the Rays.
