ALDS: Price Stifles Tribe as BoSox Attack Comes Alive
But it'll do.
Without his putting the brakes on Houston's awesome-to-date firepower, 10 runs might not have been enough to keep the Boston Red Sox from being swept right outta the post-season.
Price's heroics outta the bullpen and a six-run swing due to Fenway's funky right-field fence contributed mightily to the Red Sox' 10-3 Game 3 survival triumph.
It also means baseball will be played at least one more day in Boston.
Price was a first-round draft choice by the Tampa Bay Rays back in 2007 and is considered to be one of the elite pitchers of his time.
However, he's never been able to collect the ultimate ring in college or the pros.
But the post-season hasn't been kind. Price is 2-6 there.
Dude desperately wanted to be on Boston's post-season roster this year, of course, but he wasn't figuring into manager John Farrell's plans.
So he accepted an unaccustomed role in the bullpen.
Right now, every believer in the BoSox cause is glad he did.
