Manager Alex Cora and the Boston Red Sox breathed a sigh of relief when David Price only was diagnosed with a left wrist contusion after taking a comebacker off the arm in his last start against the Miami Marlins.
The left-hander missed his next start, but returned the mound Friday when the Sox welcomed the Houston Astros to Fenway Park.
Price showed no ill-effects from the time off, as he allowed two runs on two hits while striking out 10 in 6 1/3 innings. The Red Sox fell 6-3 in the series opener but Cora was thrilled with how the lefty looked in his first start back.
