Red Sox Vs. Athletics Lineup: David Price Starts First Game Of Road Trip

It feels as though the Boston Red Sox just returned from a long stretch of games away from Fenway Park, but they’re already back on the road again.

The Red Sox are in Oakland on Friday for a three-game series against the Athletics that kicks off a stretch of nine road games in 10 days. And David Price will get the ball rolling for the Red Sox. The left-hander will look to continue his winning ways as he’s 4-1 with a 2.93 ERA in August and coming off a solid win over the Kansas City Royals on Aug. 27, during which he allowed just two runs and struck out seven over six frames.

On the other side of the ball, Travis Shaw is back in Boston’s lineup and batting sixth against A’s right-hander Andrew Triggs. Brock Holt will start in left field and bat behind Shaw in the No. 7 hole.

Here are the Red Sox’s and the A’s lineups for Friday’s series opener.
