Price goes 7, Martinez hits 38th HR; Red Sox beat Rays 5-2

BOSTON (AP) David Price believes he's finally become the pitcher the Boston Red Sox were looking for when they signed him.

Price pitched seven solid innings, J.D. Martinez hit his major league-leading 38th homer after Boston jumped to a quick lead and the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-2 on Saturday night for their 17th victory in 20 games.

Signed to a seven-year, $217 million deal before 2016, the lefty feels as if he's finally paying off.
