You are playing the teams right in front of you or right behind you. To be in this position is huge. Its a testament to the work we have done all year.The Red Sox took a one-game lead over the Toronto Blue Jays, who lost 2-0 to the New York Yankees. Boston, which completed interleague play with a 14-6 record, will play only AL East teams in the final 23 games.Shaw, inserted into the lineup for a slumping Yoan Moncada, hit his 16th homer in the second inning, a two-run shot, and added an RBI single in the fourth.He obviously made an impact, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. He squared some balls up.Ramirezs homer came in the eighth off Jake Smiths first major league pitch.Holt added a pinch-hit homer in the ninthPrice (15-8) won his season-high sixth straight start, allowing two runs and six hits. Price, who has won four of his last five road starts, struck out eight.I definitely felt good tonight to keep the ball away from the middle of the plate and execute pitches, said Price, who threw 76 strikes in 98 pitches.(He) was extremely efficient with the number of pitches he threw, Farrell saidThree relievers finished off the Padres, with Craig Kimbrel getting the final out.Jarred Cosart (0-3) left after 3 1/3 innings after hurting his right leg while covering first base on Jackie Bradley Jr.s grounder.

After Shaws RBI, Dustin Pedroia drove in Shaw and Chris Young with a double down the left-field line. Pedroia has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games.Its pretty cool to go out there and face those guys, its a playoff team, Cosart said. I was holding my own against one of the best pitchers in baseball and was finally getting in a good rhythm and I just hit a bump in the road.Myers sacrifice fly tied the game 2-2 in the third. Cosart came around after opening the inning with a single.The Red Sox went ahead 2-1 when Shaw crushed Cosarts 93 mph fastball 425 feet for a two-run homer. Shaw replaced Moncada, a prized Cuban prospect, at third base after Moncada struck out seven straight times.Yangervis Solartes RBI double in the first scored Myers for a 1-0 lead. Myers had reached on a single.Its no stretch to state the Red Sox starting pitching has been stellar. The starters have pitched to a 3.31 ERA in the last 54 games.Our rotation, with Clay (Buchholz) being put back in, it just seems like its one guy passing it off to the next guy, Farrell said.Price has done his part, going 11-7 in his last 23 starts.I knew this was going to happen, Price said.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: RHP Steve Wright (bursitis right shoulder) remains out and Farrell said he doesnt know an end date to the injury.UP NEXT:Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (19-3, 3.23) opens a three-game series in Toronto on Friday.

In three starts against the Blue Jays this year he is 2-0 with a 5.21 ERA.Padres: LHP Clayton Richard (1-3, 3.29) gets the nod as the visiting Colorado Rockies arrive on Thursday.
