For all his left-handed, regular-season talent and success, the veteran Red Sox hurler is a playoff disaster as he showed yet again on Saturday night at Fenway Park.
One night after Chris Sale earned his first career playoff victory, Price failed in his 10th try to win a postseason start and was booed off the field by a sold-out Fenway Park crowd hoping to see the AL East champions protect the home-field advantage they earned with a franchise-record 108 regular-season wins. "If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where you get that from". Betances and Zach Britton combined for a scoreless eighth, and Aroldis Chapman subbed in to close out the ninth with a leadoff walk to Steve Pearce, a three-pitch strikeout to Eduardo Nunez, and Kinsler's game-ending double play to secure the 6-2 win.
The bombing began nearly from the outset.

The originally scheduled pitching matchup was Luis Severino for the Yankees and Rick Porcello for the Sox. Yankees manager Joe Torre gave him the baseball for Game 1 of the first postseason contest ever against the rival Red Sox, and after a shaky start - Boston scored two in the first (a fielding error with no outs fueled the rally) and one more in the second - Hernandez shut out the Red Sox in the third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth innings on just three more hits.
In their long and storied histories as iconic franchises in Major League Baseball, the Yankees and Red Sox have squared off against each other 2,215 times. On a Boston-area sports-talk radio show this author happened to catch while driving back to NY on Sunday, hosts argued that the Red Sox should eat the remainder of Price's seven-year, $217-million contract and send him packing this offseason.
Cora's rather simplistic handicapping of his team's chances to win the series was as elementary as it comes. According to Statcast, it was the longest measured home run ever at the historic venue.
Sanchez is now 7-for-14 against Price in his career with six home runs. The six-pack ties Jose Bautista for the most any batter has hit off of the 33-year-old starter.

Every American can be assured that I will be an independent and impartial justice, devoted to equal justice under law. A separate, public swearing-in ceremony is planned for 7:00 pm (2300 GMT) Monday in the White House's East Room.
And then, perhaps he'll re-gain value throughout Red Sox Nation.
NY is built for Yankee Stadium, where it takes advantage of the short right-field porch and hit 144 of its record 267 home runs.
Given that the ALDS is only a best-of-five series, Boston won't need Price to start again versus the Yankees. Ortiz hit.545 in the ALDS sweep of the Angels, including a walk-off homer in Game 3. "I saw he mentioned something to get back in the box, but you know things like that will happen in a game".
"Obviously this is my first, but I'm excited", Eovaldi said.
