David Price tossed eight strong innings of one-run ball, Mookie Betts hit a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning, and Craig Kimbrel shut the door in the ninth to earn Boston a 2-1 win, its 39th of the season.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell spoke about the importance of winning a close game like Sunday’s during his postgame news conference, as seen on NESN’s “Red Sox Final.”

See what he had to say in the video above.
