Red Sox rally for 5-4 win over Reds, extend AL East lead

Red Sox 5, Reds 4: Powered by Rafael Devers and steadied by David Price, the Red Sox came from behind to win the opener of a three-game interleague series at Great American Ballpark. Devers snapped a homerless drought of 116 plate appearances with a three-run shot in the fourth inning. Price tossed 2-2/3 innings of scoreless relief of Rick Porcello. It marked Price's second appearance since coming off the disabled list and being moved to the bullpen.

Andrew Benintendi, native of suburban Cincinnati, will have sizable rooting contingent here. "I don't know anyone who's not coming," the Red Sox left fielder said, uncertain of an exact number. Benintendi was honored at his old school in Madeira, Ohio, which had the fourth-grade chorus sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" and "Sweet Caroline."
