Price struck out nine but allowed four runs on nine hits with two walks across 4.1 innings during a no-decision against the Rays on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander has struck out 17 batters in his last 10.1 innings across two starts, both of which were against the Rays, but he didn't win either game. Price is winless in his last four outings with an 0-2 record and 5.18 ERA during that stretch. The 33-year-old started July well, but perhaps August treats him better than the finish of the month that's about to end. Overall, he is 7-4 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 123 strikeouts in 102.2 innings this season. Price will start next at the Yankees on Sunday.

Price (7-4) took the loss Wednesday as the Red Sox were downed 3-2 by the Rays, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks over six innings while striking out eight.

EDGE Analysis

Surprisingly, the southpaw only managed six swinging strikes among his 98 pitches (63 total strikes), as his lack of dominance was more than compensated for by a generous strike zone. Price now has nine quality starts on the season, and he'll carry a 3.66 ERA and 114:27 K:BB through 98.1 innings into his next outing Tuesday -- a rematch with the Rays back in Boston.

Price (7-3) allowed six runs on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts across four innings while taking a loss against the Orioles on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty hadn't allowed more than two earned runs in any of his last five starts, and during that stretch, he went 3-0. But for the second time this season, Price allowed a six runs, and the eight hits he yielded set a new season high. Price owns a 3.61 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 106 strikeouts in 92.1 innings this season. He will look to bounce back at the Rays on Wednesday.

Price did not factor into the decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, pitching five innings and giving up four runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out seven.

EDGE Analysis

Price was a victim of poor defense and unfriendly stadium dimensions, giving up three first-inning runs on a walk, a fielding error and a 326-foot home run that just managed to sneak around Pesky's Pole. He limited the Dodgers to one run the rest of the way, although he allowed at least one baserunner in every frame and needed a season-high 113 pitches to complete five innings. The no-decision snaps a string of three consecutive winning outings for Price, though he was spared a loss when the Red Sox rallied for a pair of runs in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old will carry a 7-2 record along with a 3.16 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 102:24 K:BB into his next scheduled start in Baltimore on Friday.

Price (7-2) secured the victory after allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Price surrendered his lone run of the day in the first inning on a double to left field, but he'd settle down and finish his outing with four scoreless frames. The 33-year-old lefty has now turned in four consecutive outings with three or fewer runs allowed, improving his ERA from 3.52 to 3.24 over that stretch.

Price (6-2) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while recording seven strikeouts across six innings to earn a victory against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran left-hander hadn't walked a batter in his last 11 frames, but he struggled with his control Tuesday. It didn't help the Blue Jays score much, though, as Price earned his fourth win in his last six outings. Price hasn't suffered a loss since April 27. He is 6-2 with a 3.33 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 89 strikeouts in 78.1 innings and will next face the Tigers on Sunday.

Price (5-2) picked up the win after allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits while striking out nine over six innings against the White Sox on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Price persevered through a drizzly night in Boston, throwing 97 pitches (72 strikes) to record his seventh quality start. He rebounded from a couple of short starts and pitched at least six innings for the ninth time in 14 starts. With Boston headed out to London for a weekend series with the Yankees, the rotation is getting spaced out. Price will pitch on six days rest next Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Price will make his next start Tuesday versus the White Sox, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price initially lined up to start Monday's series opener but the Red Sox will instead elect to give him an extra day of rest. The veteran left-hander was pulled after 73 pitches despite allowing only one run over five innings during his start last Tuesday, but the team has said he isn't injured and is just playing it safe heading into the All-Star break. Price has a 3.39 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 73:15 K:BB through 66.1 innings this season.

Price's removal of Tuesday's start after 73 pitches and five innings was not due to injury, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price pitched well in what turned out to be a 17-inning game, so questions were naturally raised. Manager Alex Cora said the early hook was "kind of" planned with the invention of preserving the left-hander's longevity and availability over the course of the season. "We're going to take advantage of the next 10, 12 days with the off days and all of that," Cora said. "With him going off the IL and the short starts and all that stuff, we have to make sure he's OK. He's OK, actually. It's one of those that we felt that today was one those we were short, all out and move on.​"

Price didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's marathon extra-innings loss to the Twins, allowing one run on four hits over five innings while striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw got lifted after only 73 pitches (49 strikes), a decision that looked worse and worse as the 17-inning affair dragged on and the Red Sox were forced to go deeper into their bullpen. Price will take a 3.39 ERA and 73:15 K:BB through 66.1 innings into his next start Monday, at home against the White Sox.
