Boston Red Sox: David Price looks sharp in season debut

09 Juin 2017

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price wipes his face in the dugout during the second inning of a baseball game against the Chicago White Sox, Monday, May 29, 2017, in Chicago.

It wasn't a totally far-fetched scene.

The next aspect that should be examined would be the pitching, as the Boston Red Sox heading into the season boasted one of the most risky starting rotations in all of baseball. And by "people", I mean those color commentators of a certain age who retreat to their fainting couches when players don't hit the ball the other way, make contact for contact's sake and think homers kill rallies.

He's combined to give up 15 runs over his last two starts.

Chris Sale beat his old team despite giving up six runs - five earned - in five innings Tuesday against the White Sox.

Tonight's game can be heard on the White Sox flagship station, WLS-AM 890.

"He's one of the top 10 pitchers in the world", said White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, who forged a close bond with Sale during his time in Chicago.

Radwanska had come from a set down to win her last match, and is no quitter. "Sorry that I don't remember much". Verdasco, 33, will next face either Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori or Chung Hyeon of South Korea.

The White Sox selected Sale with the 13th pick in the 2010 draft out of Florida Gulf Coast University.

The two-home run game was Marrero's first professional game at any level with multiple home runs. "It's going to be a fun atmosphere and a fun time". "Probably never", he said.

Red Sox manager John Farrell expects that competitor to take over on the mound tonight.

Perhaps we should have known something was up when he walked a batter in the first inning, but we were naive at that point. When the White Sox brought him to the big leagues only a few weeks after drafting him in 2010, they used him as a reliever until the 2012 season. Sale gave a stoic and subdued wave to the Memorial Day crowd after a tribute video played on the scoreboard after the the top of the first inning, and Jose Quintana, who starts Tuesday and could follow Sale out of the organization this season, clearly misses his friend. Quintana got cute with another curveball, and Marrero rocketed it into the left-field bleachers again. He recently had a streak of eight consecutive games with 10 or more strikeouts snapped against the Texas Rangers. He tucked his home run over the left-field wall to give the Red Sox a 4-3 lead.

If Sandoval isn't the answer, Dombrowski might have to look into a trade. He is on pace to finish with 19 home runs. Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas also could be on the move. Bradley fouled off the first one, but he barreled the second one and hit it over the wall in right to make it a 10-6 game. Before his breakout night, he was batting only.175 with a.230 on-base percentage in 21 games, a lack of production that was consistent with his struggles at the plate in Triple-A.

"Absolutely, I think it very well could be that he's still getting better", said White Sox amateur scouting director Nick Hostetler, who scouted and signed Sale in 2010. "That's what I've done". "It will be a different feeling watching him go against me after the last four years when he was my teammate".

Watching the left-handed Sale work, it became obvious he was a little too amped up for the occasion.
