David Price Starts For Red Sox In Father’s Day Matchup Vs. Mariners

BOSTON — The Red Sox have a chance to win their series against the Mariners on Sunday, and it’ll be up to David Price to keep Seattle at bay.

The left-handed ace will start in Boston’s Father’s Day game, and he’s been pitching his way through a pretty successful stretch. Price has delivered seven consecutive quality starts dating to May 12 and will be looking for a victory Sunday, as a lack of offense has handed him the loss in his last three outings.

Otherwise, the rest of the Red Sox will send out the same lineup that scored six runs and produced two home runs in a 6-2 win Saturday. The only difference is that Chris Young and Travis Shaw will trade places in the order in the No. 7 and 8 spots, respectively.

Here are the Red Sox’s and Mariners’ lineups for Sunday.

Dustin Pedroia, 2B
Xander Bogaerts, SS
