#RedSox Game Summary (July 22) A Price Low

#RedSox Game Summary (July 22) A Price low. David Price was handed an early 3 run lead, but he could not sustain it against an inspired Angel lineup. The Sox scored in the very first inning when Los Angeles at Anaheim starter JC Ramirez walked Andrew Benintendi and Dustin Pedroia back-to-back, then yielded a single to Hanley Ramirez to plate the first run in the game. In the second inning, Mitch Moreland singled and scored on a Mookie Betts double. Mookie then scored on a single by Benny Baseball. David Price did not seem himself, allowing Angel runners in each of the first 2 innings. Then in the 3rd. it all blew up. After giving up a single to Ben Revere and walking Mike Trout, Price allowed a double to Albert Pujols, which resulted in 2 Angel runs. Then Andrelton Simmons homered to make the score 4-3, LAA. Interestingly enough, manager John Farrell left Price in the game through the 5th, at the top of which Farrell was ejected for arguing balls and strikes after Mookie, Benny, and Pedey struck out in order. In the bottom of the inning, a succession of 3 singles yielded another Angel run, and a throwing error by Xander Bogaerts on a subsequent play allowed another run to score, making the LAA bulge 6-3. Heath Hembree took over pitching duties in the 6th, but the Angels continued their attack as a pair of singles by Revere and Mike Trout produced their 7th run. Martín Maldonado also doubled for the Angels, and Bogaerts did for the Red Sox, but neither scored. Despite this disappointing game, I consider it an anomaly for Price, whom I expect to bounce back in his next start. Los Angeles at Anaheim beat Boston, 7-3, at Angel Stadium. Record: 55-44. Game 99/63.
