Red Sox ace David Price struggles in minor league start

Red Sox ace David Price struggles in minor league start

He allowed three runs, all earned, five hits (one homer) and one walk while striking out four in his two innings.

He lasted two innings and labored through 65 pitches while surrendering a home run and bases loaded two-run single to Buffalo.

1B Mitch Moreland hit his third home run of the season, a solo shot leading off the fourth inning in Boston's 8-3 loss at Oakland on Thursday.

"It felt really good, the first time getting out there and competing at something", Price said. Price is expected to throw 85 to 90 pitches and could be activated from the DL next week. Velazquez allowed six runs on nine hits, including three home runs, over five innings in an 8-3 loss. If that goes well, the A's are looking at having him throw a bullpen session sometime in the middle of next week.

Another rehabie for Boston is Brock Holt who has been set back multiple times with vertigo but was able to play on Friday against Buffalo and went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk as of the eighth inning. Unfortunately the velocity of Prices pitches are unknown due to technical difficulties with the radar gun in Buffalo.

"I feel great right now", Price said. The only other player with at least 10 strikeouts in eight straight starts was Pedro Martinez for Boston in 1999.

After the game Price met with members of the media and gave some insight into how he felt, and how he thinks the short-term future will play out. Davis followed with a blast to right-center for his 12th home run.

Iran: Rouhani leads initial count; over 70 percent turnout
Rouhani, considered a moderate, was a key architect of the 2015 nuclear deal with the USA , the European Union and other partners. Rouhani, meanwhile, is essentially running for re-election as an outsider, and is backed by Iran's reformist camp.

Price would get Rowdy Tellez to pop out to short and struck out Jason Leblebijian to end the inning.

Price had a better week from a personal perspective in celebrating the birth of his son, Xavier, on Tuesday.

There's plenty of focus being placed on Price, who is entering the second year of a $217 million contract.

With the Red Sox scheduled to throw left-handed starters the next three days, it wouldn't be surprising if the A's take a cautious approach and keep him out. Aside from Price, the Red Sox's rotation includes last year's AL Cy Young victor Rick Porcello (2-5) and they added Chris Sale (4-2).

Boston third baseman Pablo Sandoval also rehabbed for Pawtucket and went 0-3 as a designated hitter in his first game rehabbing coming off injury. Out since April 24 with a sprained right knee, Sandoval popped out to second, lined out to left and then grounded out to third. "First day after missing a month, I'm happy to be back". "I want to help my team".

Taking the mound with the lead in the second inning after a rough start to the game was just what Sonny Gray needed to get back on track.
