BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- David Price pitched seven scoreless innings to help the Red Sox to their 100th win of the season last night at Fenway--first time the franchise has reached that plateau since 1946.

What does Price think the next goal is?

"Main goal now is to win 101," Price said. "We're focused on today, today is over, so we want to get to 101. That's what we've done all year long, that's why we have 100 wins right now. That's what we need to continue to do."

Price is unbeaten in 11 starts, with a 5-0 record and 1.56 ERA in nine outings since the All-Star break.

Chris Sale hasn't been a regular member of the Red Sox rotation since July 27th--luckily, David Price has stepped up.

Eduardo Rodriguez will try to be just as impressive tonight as Boston eyes a series-sweep and 15-4 record this year opposite Toronto.

Rodriguez is 12-4. The southpaw has a 4.63 ERA in 11 lifetime meetings with the Blue Jays, including 10 starts, but he's 2-0 against them with a 2.41 mark in three appearances this year.

Jays will counter with Sam Gaviglio. The righty's just 3-8 with a 5.25 ERA. He's posted a 3.95 mark in four games versus the Sox this season.Boston's magic number is seven to win the East for the third straight year.

First pitch at 7 p.m.
