EDGE AnalysisPrice salvaged the day after Boston was put down easily in the afternoon game. It was the second straight weekend in which Price has been a stopper. Six days after halting the team's four-game losing streak with a win at Yankee Stadium, Price stopped Boston's two-game skid Saturday. The left-hander has emerged as the staff ace early on, sporting a 1.88 ERA over his last nine starts. Price next takes the mound Thursday at home against the Rangers, a team that surprisingly leads Boston in the wild-card playoff race.
