David Price was superb in earning a no-decision in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Angels, rolling through eight shutout frames while scattering seven singles.
Manager John Farrell is probably second-guessing himself tonight, at least just a little bit. Price had thrown 109 pitches through eight innings and could have theoretically at least started the ninth, but Farrell turned to Brad Ziegler instead. The reliever subsequently blew the save as Price lost out on what would have been a smooth 1-0 win. Tumultuous end aside, this was a strong effort from the ace southpaw. He will bring a 4.26 ERA -- plus a 1.26 WHIP and 151/31 K/BB ratio (143 2/3 innings) -- into a road date with the Mariners next time he toes the rubber. Jul 29 - 1:25 AM

Date:

David Price yielded 11 hits and five runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday against the Twins.

It was the second straight start Price has allowed 11 hits and the sixth time in his last seven outings that he's given up eight or more hits in a game. Of course, in three of those he also struck out 10 batters, and one was an eight-inning, four-hit gem. Thus is the ballad of David Price -- you take the bad with the good this year. It all adds up to a 4.51 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 145/30 K/BB ratio. Price will look for better days Thursday at the Angels.
Jul 24 - 12:40 AM

David Price struggled in Sunday night's loss to the Yankees, surrendering three runs on 11 hits in his 5 2/3 frames.

Price walked one and only recorded one strikeout on the night. All of the damage occurred during an uprising in the fourth inning, with run-scoring hits from Starlin Castro, Austin Romine and Jacoby Ellsbury. Price will look to improve upon his disappointing 4.36 ERA and 1.23 WHIP when he does battle against the Twins at home on Saturday.
Jul 17 - 11:18 PM

David Price was phenomenal in Sunday's 4-0 defeat of the Rays, striking out 10 over eight shutout innings.

Price scattered four hits and walked just one on the afternoon. He finished out his eight innings of work having thrown 113 pitches (78 strikes). While he still holds a slightly inflated 4.34 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, there are legitimate signs that Price might be shaking out of his first-half slumbers. He has now notched double-digit strikeouts in four of his last six outings -- and each of his last three starts. He holds a 140/27 K/BB ratio across 124 1/3 innings. Any buy-low window that existed during Price's early-season scuffles is rapidly closing at this point.
Jul 10 - 6:34 PM

David Price struck out 10 batters but took a loss Tuesday, giving up three runs across eight innings against the Rangers.

Things got off to an inauspicious start, as Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a home run on Price's first pitch. The left-hander pitched very well after that, but The Rangers' pitching staff was able to hold down the Red Sox. Price has struck out 10+ batters in three of his last five starts but has taken a loss in each of those outings. He'll carry a 4.64 ERA into the All-Star break.
Jul 5 - 11:16 PM

David Price struck out 10 batters, but took the loss after allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Rays.

Price surrendered a solo homer to Brandon Guyer in the second inning before giving up a three-spot in the third. The southpaw appeared to have righted the ship recently, but he has given up 10 runs in his last two starts while seeing his ERA increase from 4.24 to 4.74 in the process. On the bright side, Price leads the American League with 120 strikeouts. He’ll get the Rangers next.
Jun 29 - 3:12 PM

David Price was hammered by the Rangers for six earned runs on 12 base hits in only 2 1/3 innings on Friday and was lucky to escape with a no-decision when the Red Sox came back late to win the game.

Price's ERA took a beating and is now back up to 4.68 in 102 innings. Considering he gave up so many hits in such a short time Price could have given up even more runs, but only two of the twelve hits went for extra bases and he didn't add to his misery by walking anyone. Price was terrible early in the season but had been pitching very effectively for a long time. This was his first clunker since a May 7th game against the Yankees. He should be one of the better pitchers in the league moving forward.
Jun 25 - 12:36 AM

David Price pitched admirably in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners, allowing one run on eight hits over eight innings.

Price struck out seven without walking a batter on the afternoon. Franklin Gutierrez rocked a solo homer off him in the fourth inning, but he otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. After scuffling through April and early May, the ace southpaw has been fantastic. He has made it through eight innings in each of his last three starts and has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his last eight outings. Price will carry a 4.24 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 109/24 K/BB ratio (99 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Rangers next time he takes the mound.
Jun 19 - 9:59 PM

David Price struck out 11 and allowed three runs over eight frames but took a loss against the Orioles on Tuesday.

Price really settled in after serving up a two-run shot to Manny Machado in the first inning, but he was victimized by Jonathan Schoop with another longball in the eighth and that wound up being the difference in the game. The left-hander has his ERA down to 4.52, which is the lowest it's been in two months. He's leading the American League with his 102 strikeouts. Price will face the Mariners on Sunday.
Jun 14 - 10:11 PM

David Price took a complete-game loss after allowing two runs and three hits in eight innings Wednesday against the Giants.

Two of those three hits were solo homers, which was enough to doom Price tonight. Unfortunately, Price's run support has dried up some as he's started to pitch better. He's lost his last two starts to fall to 7-3, but his ERA has dropped from 5.11 to 4.63 in that span.
Jun 9 - 1:10 AM

David Price took the loss Friday against the Blue Jays after giving up three runs (two earned) over seven innings.

It was his first loss since May 7. Price put himself in an early hole by giving up a two-run homer to Edwin Encarnacion in the first inning. The southpaw struck out five and walked a season-high four batters against his former team. He’ll try to bounce back next week when he brings a 4.88 ERA into a matchup against the Giants on the road.
Jun 3 - 11:22 PM

David Price allowed two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings in earning a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

It was something of a listless performance from Price, who tied his season low in strikeouts with three. The Blue Jays were unable to take advantage, though, and only a two-run homer by Jose Bautista in the fifth inning resulted in legitimate damage against the ace southpaw. Price has allowed three or fewer runs in seven of his 11 starts, but he has also posted four starts of five or more runs allowed. It all equals out to a 5.11 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 79/18 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings. He will try to drop his ERA under 5.00 when he faces these same Blue Jays at Fenway next time out.
May 29 - 5:33 PM

David Price struck out six and allowed three runs across seven frames in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Rockies.

It wasn't a dominant outing, as Price's six punchouts is a pretty low total for him this season. However, he surrendered only five hits and one walk on the night, notching his third straight quality start and seventh victory. Price will bring an improving 5.34 ERA into Toronto this weekend.
May 24 - 11:26 PM

David Price yielded two runs in 7 1/3 innings Wednesday in a victory over the Royals.

Two in a row for Price. He still has the ugly 5.53 ERA, but he's allowed one or two runs in five of his nine starts, including these last two. This is a new season high in innings for him.
May 19 - 12:05 AM

David Price fanned 12 Astros hitters over 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball, leading the Red Sox to a lopsided 11-1 victory on Thursday.

Price was absolutely dominant on a night when he didn't need to be. The southpaw scattered six hits and a walk over his 6 2/3 innings of work, and his 12 strikeouts marked the third time in eight starts this year that he's racked up double-digit K's. The Jekyll and Hyde act leaves him with a 5-1 record but ugly 6.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 65/13 K/BB ratio over 48 inning overall. Price will try to make it back-to-back strong showings when he faces the Royals on Tuesday.
