Red Sox Fall to Yankees 6-2 in ALDS Game 2, Series Tied 1-1
Sunday, October 07, 2018
The start is the shortest playoff start of Price’s carer and tied with Roger Clemens for the shortest in Red Sox postseason history.
"I just want to win. That's it," Price said. "My main goal is to win in the playoffs, to win a World Series. Whatever I need to do to help us do that, I'm fine with. But I know I'm more than capable of winning games as a starter in October. That's what I look forward to doing,” said Price in his post-game press conference.
The series is now tied at 1 heading back to New York.
Yankees Beat Red Sox
The Yankees jumped on Price right out of the gate.
Aaron Judge hit a home run in the first inning to put New York up 1-0 and Gary Sanchez hit a home run in the second inning to put the Yankees up 2-0.
After Price walked Yankees rookie Glyber Torres, Andrew McCutchen hit a long single off the Green Monster to score Torres and give the Yankees a 3-0 lead.
Price was removed from the game and replaced by Joe Kelly.
The Red Sox would cut the Yankees lead to 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth when Xander Bogaerts hit a home run to center, but that is as close as Boston would get.
The Yankees still led 3-1 in the top of the seventh when Sanchez belted a three-run home run off Eduardo Rodriguez to extend the Yankees lead to 6-1.
Boston would get a run back in the bottom of the inning, but would not get any closer.
Game three of the series is set for Monday, October 8 at Yankee Stadium.
The projected pitching matchup is New York's Luis Severino against Boston's Rick Porcello.
Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
