After playing 16 innings Saturday, the Boston Red Sox needed their starting pitchers to eat some innings Sunday during their doubleheader with the New York Yankees.
While Rick Porcello pitched six innings in a tough-luck loss in Game 1, David Price was nothing short of brilliant in Game 2.
The Red Sox left-hander threw eight shutout innings, allowing seven hits and striking out eight in Boston’s 3-0 win at Fenway Park.
Manager John Farrell couldn’t have been more impressed with Price’s outing, lauding the veteran’s fastball velocity and depth on his breaking pitches.
