David Price on approach vs. Yankees: 'Go back to that drawing board'

0 Comment

Another ragged start against the New York Yankees has Boston Red Sox starter David Price contemplating a new approach for the next time he faces them.

With the home runs and earned runs piling up in Sunday night's 11-1 loss at Yankee Stadium, Price knew that the plan he implemented in this latest outing against his team's biggest rival simply didn't work.

"It's time for me to kind of go back to that drawing board and kind of reinvent myself against these guys," the 32-year-old left-hander said.official nfl jerseys cheap

Across just 3 1/3 innings in Sunday's blowout loss, Price surrendered eight runs on nine hits. He allowed the Yankees to hit five home runs on their way to a six-homer night. It was only the fifth time in the past 100 seasons that the Yankees had that many home runs in a game against the Red Sox.15

The five long balls Price gave up also set a career high for him. The most he had ever allowed in a game was three. The last time he did that was in September 2016 -- also against the nfl jerseys for cheap

"[Sunday] was one of those that he wasn't at his best, and they were at their best, obviously," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said.

Perhaps the most dialed-in Yankee was switch-hitting center fielder Aaron Hicks, who recorded the first three-homer game of his career. He paced an offensive attack that was powered by six home runs overall. This was the third time a Yankee had hit three homers in a game against the Red Sox. Lou Gehrig and Mark Teixeira also accomplished the feat.

Two of Hicks' home runs came against Price. It was after the second that was driven into a protective netting covering Monument Park beyond the center-field fence that Cora hopped out of the dugout to replace the starter.

"If you take a look at the game, it seemed like the righties decided not to swing at the inside part of the plate," Cora said, referencing the Yankees' patience with Price.
