It's tough to blame Price for those two runs, but the two that Houston scored in the top of the third fall squarely on his left shoulder.
"I'd rather miss where I did than the middle of the plate (like he did vs. the Yankees in the ALDS, )" Price said.
If Bogaerts makes the play on Correa or Springer pops out to first then Price escapes the second inning without any damage. As he left the field, many among the 37,960 Fenway Faithful offered up a standing ovation.
Price followed it with a sharply hit double to Martin Maldonado - who came in to last night hitting.091 in the postseason - so that was definitely on him. In the bottom half of the third, the Red Sox put together a rally, loading the bases with one out. Eovaldi will oppose Dallas Keuchel as the series shifts to Houston.

The highest peak in the range is the Dhaulagiri I, the seventh highest mountain in the world at 26,795 feet above sea level. It was unlikely the weather would clear on Saturday and the base camp is at least one-day trek from the nearest village.
An RBI double that inning by right fielder Mookie Betts brought home the final Boston run and gave Kimbrel an extra cushion.
Betts scored an insurance run in the seventh, walking to lead off the inning and coming around to make it 6-4 on a wild pitch and a pair of passed balls.
His statistics do not account for the times his managers left him in as he clearly exhausted, or for his two-run complete game in the '13 Game 163 tiebreaker that sent his Rays to the playoffs, or for his 2.35 ERA in 15 1/3 postseason relief innings, but they tell a story, and Price knows what it is.
Though they lost Game 2 by a 7-5 score back at Fenway, it was an example of the never-over-til-it's-over drive that fuels this team. He fell to the warning track, but after the training staff and manger AJ Hinch went out to check on him he stayed in the game. I think home run clips, right? But, against left-handed hitting, they recorded a pedestrian.313 wOBA (18th-best in MLB). He retired Houston in order in the sixth, needing just 15 pitches to get his four outs on the night.
The wall exacted a little revenge on Gonzalez in the next inning, however. "It's more than the Red Sox".
Borna Coric claims Roger Federer scalp to reach Shanghai Masters final
A furious pace was established early in the first set and Coric, having initially matched his opponent stride for stride, soon found the going tough .
The Red Sox starting pitcher has been admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital after experiencing stomach illness.
With a day off today between Game 2 and 3, the Red Sox have also said that they have not decided their exact plans for Sale, who is projected a now-necessary Game 5 at Minute Maid Park, just yet.
The game, which the Astros trampled the Red Sox 7-2, averaged 5,821,000 viewers.
Cora said the ailment didn't affect Sale's effort in the series opener. Still, after losses in the 10 games that Price had started in the postseason for various clubs, his team, at least, finally came away a victor.
Sale threw four innings on Saturday night and took the loss. The biggest offensive burst for the Sox was Jackie Bradley's three-run double in the third, just the 10th such play in ACS history ... With 11 consecutive post-season starts without a victory, the Nashville native matched the longest-such stretch in Major League Baseball history.
