Boston Red Sox to start Nathan Eovaldi in Game 3 of ALDS

  • David Price Booed Mercilously by Boston Fans After Another Playoff Failure

"Not much to talk about", Brasier said plainly.

Nathan Eovaldi will get the start in Game 3 for the Boston Red Sox as their American League Division Series shifts to NY on Monday. He left to a stinging chorus of boos as he trudged, head down, to the dugout.

For the Red Sox to salvage this game, their beleaguered bullpen would have to keep the Yankees' offense at bay for the rest of the game, and their own lineup would need to chip away at what was then a three-run lead against Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka and the army of flamethrowing relievers they had in reserve.

The losing pitcher doesn't usually go to the interview room.

The steep, sloping stands and intimate dimensions of Fenway Park, the "lyric little bandbox" of Updike's famous depiction, seem created to cause the impression, particularly on cool October nights, of walls closing in on the unsuspecting opponent standing at the center of its diamond. But I can tell you it's an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as him, a legend of baseball. But my spirits aren't down, my confidence isn't down. I'm looking forward to getting back out there and getting another opportunity...

Everything in the postseason is a small sample of performance. The series is tied, 1-1. You have a limited number of games to prove yourself. Knowing that, you have to go out there and execute pitches in big spots in counts. In 42 starts against the Yanks, Price is just 15-15 and has surrendered 37 home runs.

There comes a point where there's nothing left to say.

Some will call this a moral failing on Price's part, maybe rip into his mental toughness and all that.

"I know Price works the corners really well and locates well, so we just had to make sure we capitalized early on pitches that were in the zone", Judge added.

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy heaps praise on manager Pep Guardiola
Klopp is likely to keep faith in the front three of Salah, Mane & Firmino as he looks to press Manchester City high up the pitch. The intervening years have seen Manchester United storm ahead. "They had more chances, we didn't have a shot on target".

Have yourself a night, Gary Sanchez! They have six homers in the three games with Aaron Judge responsible for three and Gary Sanchez two.

Alex Cora, to his credit, wasted no time (pulling David Price in the second inning). Andrew McCutchen knocked in the third run with a loud single high off the Monster.

Price said he didn't execute.

"It's tough", Price said.

But the Red Sox must find a way against good pitchers, like Tanaka and Severino (19-8, 3.39). His teammates are still behind Price.

First baseman Mitch Moreland exited Saturday's game in the eighth inning because of right hamstring tightness, Cora announced (via Cotillo). "This doesn't change that". He's the No. 2 starter in the rotation behind Chris Sale. Price's teams have never won a playoff game (0-10) when he has started even though he holds a 143-75 regular season record with a 3.25 ERA.

Aaron Judge went yard in both Game 1 and Game 2, with his Game 2 shot traveling a whopping 445 feet. Price might be needed in relief. I was ready to go. He wants to win and he knows he is certainly capable of getting it done.

"I just want to win". "And whatever I need to do to help us do that I'm fine with". Until October, when more often than not, he's turned into a pumpkin.

Maybe they'll use Price in relief before this series closes. But regardless what happens, it's worth wondering if Price pitches again in this series and what the plan would be for the ALCS.
