Price Flops Again In Postseason
The Berkshire Eagle reports David Price lasted just 1 2/3 innings in Boston's 6-2 AL Division Series loss on Saturday night, giving up three runs and three hits, including home runs to Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez that cleared the Green Monster.
Price trudged off the field to a chorus of boos from the Red Sox fans who had cheered him when he took the mound just an inning prior.
Of 70 pitchers with at least 10 career postseason starts, only Price is without a victory. He didn't take the quick hook personally.
Price has linked his confidence in moving the ball around the strike zone to his success late in the regular season. He said he made a turning after an 11-1 loss at New York on July 1, when he gave up five home runs. He closed the regular season by winning seven of his last eight decisions.
