Boston's Bats Don't Help David Price In Loss Vs. Angels

Ruben Hill
June 26, 2017

Out of the 2,408 career games he played in between the Red Sox and Minnesota Twins, he was exclusively the DH in 2,029 games, or 84 percent of the time.

Red Sox manager John Farrell was already upset his club was losing to the Angels Saturday after another disappointing outing from David Price, but then a questionable balk call put him over the top.

Red Sox DH Hanley Ramirez who has fallen to the 6th spot in the lineup had a two-run home run in the game out to opposite field.

Ramirez (7-5) allowed four hits and no walks while striking out five. Porcello went 6 and 1/3 innings for Boston while giving up 8 hits and 3 earned runs.

TRAINER'S ROOM - Red Sox: INF Josh Rutledge was a pregame scratch with left hip soreness.

"It started off that Abad had started and stopped before stepping off the back of the rubber", Miller said after the game.

"It was vintage Porcello", Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

Twins 4, Indians 2: Brian Dozier hit a leadoff homer off closer Cody Allen to break an eighth-inning tie and Minnesota defeated Cleveland for the second straight day.

"I don't have enough words", he said, via MacPherson.

"It's really not acceptable you just have to be better than that", he said. "It made me feel like one of those important games that we have where the fans want to be there from the very beginning and show some love and support". Doug Fister is scheduled to make his Boston debut, and he'll be opposed by fellow right-hander Parker Bridwell.

The Red Sox improve to 41-32 on the season.

He's expected to play third base at AAA Pawtucket and will provide depth with Pablo Sandoval dealing with an inner ear infection.

The Red Sox have also transferred the ailing Brock Holt to the 60-Day DL as a procedural move. He hit.204 in 21 games with the Cardinals this season and is guaranteed $10 million as part of a $53 million, four-year contract he agreed to before the 2014 season.

Miami also announced agreements Friday with No. 36 overall pick Brian Miller ($1,888,800) and No. 51 pick Joe Dunand ($1.2 million).

It's not the first time Farrell has been ejected by Miller. He was pitching with their Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake City, but had a clause in his deal to opt out if he wasn't added to the major league roster by June 21.

Rodriguez saved 44 games for the Tigers in 2016; this season, he was 2-5 with a 7.82 ERA this season.
