BALTIMORE – David Price's career with the Red Sox is ultimately judged by how he competes against the best teams, especially in the postseason. That should not diminish the fun he provided on Saturday afternoon in dismantling a historically bad Orioles team.
The price went lower and has scored other goalless games this season, but in the Red Sox's 5-0 win with a double headed wistful Orioles, he was in highest swing-and-miss form. The prize was 20 on 94 pitches, as he did not run any dough and hit a season-high 10 in six innings.
The prize allowed only five hits – a single doubles and four singles spread over five different innings ̵
There was nothing off this microphone-swirling anthem-rock that was played in a football stadium the night before offensive scored 19 runs. Instead, it was just a steady, crafting feat that turned off Orioles starter Jimmy Yacabonis before the end of the fifth innings.
Yacabonis spun three 1-2-3 innings ahead of fifth, which started with a single by Xander Bogaerts. One later, Nunez glared at 3-0 cookies over the left field wall near the foul stake. Bradley pulled a 0-1 Yacabonis offensive into the right field to give the Red Sox a 3-0 lead.
After Yacabonis admitted a single to the next hitter, Mookie Betts, Buck Showalter, took the ball from his starter. Sean Gilmartin took the lead and worked another goal, but Bogaerts brought the sixth with a brace in the left corner. He stole third base and when the throw of Austin Wynns came through third Basman Renato Nunez, he jogged home 4-0.
Bradley hits another solo shot, Miguel Castro with one in nine
The only full game of the season came against the Orioles in May, and he has won his last six starts against them. This time Tyler Thornburg, Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes needed only 38 games between them to record the last nine.
In his 27 career starts against Baltimore, Price is 14-5 with a 2.67 ERA.
Hector Velazquez (7-0, 2.64) will make his fourth start of the season at 19:05 night cap, against right-wing extremist Yefry Ramirez (1-4, 5:66). Ramirez is 1-1 in a pair against the Sox this season, and the 7/6 win on July 24 marks his first win in the big leagues.
