Just another day and another sh*tty outing from our lefty “ace”. David Price, paid around $50k per pitch this season, was shelled yet again by the Yankees, who I will remind you rank among the worst teams in runs scored. Price was tagged for six runs in 4.2 innings of work as he cruised through the first two and then promptly giftwrapped the game for New York. The BoSox lineup was once again silent as they could only answer with two runs thanks in part to four men going hitless in the game.
For the second straight game our BoSox took an early lead and coughed it up as they have now secured a series loss and snapped their recent streak of success.
- Jackie Bradley Jr did his part with a solo homer to right center, his third of the season.
- You can thank Brock Holt for the only other run with his RBI single.
- Nearly half the team being held hitless isn’t a good way to score runs–exactly why the Sox were shut down by the Bombers.
- Just another dumpster fire outing for Price, but more on that in a bit.
- Not that it would have made any difference AT ALL, but our pen coughed up two runs courtesy of Tommy Layne and Sean O’Sullivan.
Starting Pitcher Rewind
Seriously Price what the f*ck? Price stands at 4-1 on the season, but after this outing has a gruesom 6.75 ERA. He was lit up like a Christmas tree by the Yankees, as he was tagged for six runs in 4.2 innings of work on seven hits and three walks to just four strikeouts. What’s concerning is a distinct drop in velocity (more on that in another article) as Price has been getting slapped around nearly every time he takes the mound.
The Orioles lost so we’re still tied in first place, but the Sox had better win soon or we won’t be tied for long.
