ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Quotes, notes and stars from the Red Sox' 6-2 win over Tampa Bay:
* "Pretty stunned. That was an unbelievable play. He ran a long way, was at full speed and then to go over (the wall) and hold onto the ball was pretty impressive." - Steven Souza Jr., who was robbed of a two-run homer in the eighth by Andrew Benintendi.
* "He asked me how I was and I told him, 'I'm good; I got this.'" David Price recounting his mound conversation in the eighth with John Farrell.
* "Yeah, I think that's the best catch I've ever made. I've never really had an opportunity to take one back and I was fortunate enough I could." Benintendi on his catch.
* David Price's ERA is now 4.00, it's lowest since after his Opening Day start.
* David Ortiz's first inning double was his 624th, tying him with Hank Aaron for 10th place all-time.
* Ortiz extended his own record for most doubles in a season by a player 40 or older (40) and most extra-base hits (70).
* Ortiz has reached base in 15 straight games.
* Ortiz tied Bobby Doerr for 6th on the Red Sox' all-time hit list with 2,042.
* The Red Sox grabbed a share of first place for the first time since July 21.
* The Sox drew eight walks, tying a season high.
* Xander Bogaerts' 15 homers are the most for anyone at the position for the Red Sox (minimum 50 percent of games there) since Nomar Garciaparra hit 28 in 2003.
* When the Rays scored twice in the ninth, it snapped a 25-inning scoreless streak against the Red Sox.
1) David Price
Price turned in what was arguably his best start all season, allowing just four baserunners over eight innings while striking out eight. There were three hard-hit balls off Price all night -- and two were caught by his left fielders.
2) Andrew Benintendi
At the plate, Benintendi was 0-for-3, though he did knock in a run with a sacrifice fly. But he made his real impact in the field, stealing a two-run homer from Steve Souza Jr. in the eighth inning with what might be the best catch you see all season.
3) Xander Bogaerts
Bogaerts had been slumping of late, with no RBIs since Aug. 10 and only two all month. But he had a single and a two-run homer to break out of his batting funk.
