#RedSox Game Summary (June 8) Price Ain’t Right

#RedSox Game Summary (June 8) Price ain’t right. And it’s not just Price; the whole pitching staff seems to be in the doldrums, and that seems to have affected the hitters as well. The Red Sox just barely managed to eke out one run to avoid the shutout when, in the 4th inning, Xander Bogaerts struck out but reached 1st on a throwing error by Yankee catcher Chase Headley. He reached second on a bunt single by Mitch Moreland, and got to 3rd on a double play, scoring on a wild pitch by Yankee starter Michael Pineda. That was it for the mighty Red Sox offense, who managed just 4 hits and 4 walks over the whole game. Meanwhile, for the second time in a row, a premier Red Sox starter got beaten about. David Price gave up 6 runs on 8 hits, including two home runs by Gary Sanchez, over just 5 innings in which he threw 107 pitches. He walked 4 and struck out 4. In fact, each of the Red Sox pitchers in this game gave up at least one run. Fernando Abad gave up 2 singles and a walk for a run in the 6th. Brandon Workman surrendered a solo blast to Brett Gardner in the 8th, then after loading the bases on 2 singles and a HBP, gave up another run on a fielder’s choice. The Sox seem to lack energy and confidence. Let’s hope that all changes soon, as Boston, which had a chance to tie and even go ahead of New York, has instead slipped to 3 games back. New York beat Boston, 9-1, at Yankee Stadium. Record: 32-27. Game 59/103.
