The Red Sox, though, pulled back ahead for good with J.D. Martinez’s two-out, bases-loaded single in the fifth. Starter David Price put together a solid outing, and the Boston bullpen worked three scoreless innings to secure the win. As noted, the Sox scored first in this one, and even though they squandered that initial lead they wound up winning.

That, as you can probably guess, is as inordinately high percentage of runs scored in such situations — 50.8 percent as of the Kinsler ribbie above. This is also a short-run aberration for them.
