How Will Fenway Faithful Welcome Price?

David Price will be making his first start at Fenway Park since returning to the rotation following a spring training elbow injury. It will also be the first time Price starts since going on a tirade against the Boston media saying he will not grant them interviews on days he is pitching. Price, who had a 4.11 ERA at Fenway last season, better get off to a good start against the Philadelphia Phillies or the temperamental Fenway faithful may lose patience with the lefty.

Shark Bites
  • The Phillies are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games on the road against the Red Sox.
  • The Phillies are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games as road underdogs.
  • Mitch Moreland is 11-for-27 with 7 RBIs during his current 7-game hitting streak.

Price struggled in his most recent outing, surrendering eight hits, six runs and two home runs in just 5.0 innings of work. As long as Price can produce a solid outing, the Boston Red Sox will be happy with the bullpen posting a 3.02 ERA, the fourth-best in the MLB.

The slumping Phillies will send rookie Ben Lively to the bump to counter Price. The righty has been a solid presence in the Phillies’ rotation with Lively pitching 7.0 innings in each of his first two starts while allowing just four runs. Getting after Lively early will be key for the BoSox, as the youngster has given up a .333 batting averaging in the first through third compared to .211 between the fourth and sixth.
