The bullpen will have a slightly different look on Monday as it seems very likely Steven Wright is added into the mix, as he returns following his 15-game suspension. Price (3-4) skipped last Wednesday's start against the Yankees after experiencing numbness during a bullpen session last Sunday.

Every flameup only reinforces how far he is from the chill days in Tampa, Detroit and even Toronto. "You've got to have a plan and try to execute".

Drew Pomeranz limited the Yankees to two runs over six frames Tuesday in a no-decision.

Price (3-4) allowed two runs, five hits and three walks and struck out six in 5 1/3 innings for his first win since April 17, a span of three winless starts. He sat at 93.3 m.p.h. with his two-seamer, topped out at 94.8 m.p.h., generated 11 swinging strikes, five with his cutter, and allowed only four balls off the bat in excess of 100 m.p.h.: a Teoscar Hernandez double, a Gio Urshela single plus lineouts by Josh Donaldson and Yangervis Solarte.

Price left one batter after Smoak's leadoff shot in the sixth.

Price improved to 18-3 against the Blue Jays in his career.

Some relief from interesting week? "That's good to have that feeling out there". He was pulled in the fifth and relieved by Hector Velazquez, who pitched two scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 2.10. After police and security staff escorted the fan out the gate in right field, Cora came out to make the change. "I thought he would chase, he obviously didn't and Maile went down and got it". "And he competed. That's all we want for him".

Betts said it was good to see Price back on the mound. "You've got to be able to roll with it".

At least that specific skipper's Ave Maria was answered in Toronto's 5-2 loss: a six-inning contribution by Estrada, in a month when only three starts have gone that distance. Hanley Ramirez 1B 4.

Estrada retired nine batters in a row before Xander Bogaerts doubled with one out in the sixth and scored on a single by Rafael Devers.

Toronto's Marco Estrada (2-3) allowed four runs, seven hits and one walk while striking out five in six innings in his fourth straight start without a win.

"It feels like it's usually a home run that kinda kills it for me", Estrada said. "Just at a point where I felt like I had to work at 115-120 percent when I would normally be working at 80-85 percent to do what I do out there".

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays square off in the rubber match of their three game AL East division set from Rogers Centre in Major League Baseball action on Sunday afternoon. A strong season opens up options for Price, who can opt out of the remaining four years and $127 million on his contract in the fall.

Boston's two-run fourth was of the somewhat unconventional variety.

The Blue Jays are 3-13 in Biagini's last 16 starts and are 1-7 in his last eight outings when he faces the rest of the American League East.

"It's always a place I've enjoyed pitching", Price said of Toronto. "I didn't think he hit it that well but ... got a double out of it". "Things are usually going okay, and the next thing I know I get two guys on, the next guy hits a ball well and it gets out, and it ruins everything".

Still, a guarantee nine-figure payout to a pitcher who'll turn 34 in August 26, 2019 is a lot of cake to walk away from, which is why the two sides may be struck together.
